Just heard that I've been granted a scholarship to attend the Project LEAD Institute course in La Jolla, CA in July. With around 50 attendees, and likely as the only guy, this is quite a big deal for me. Has anyone here attended this course?

THE COURSE
The Project LEAD Institute is a six-day intensive science course, designed for the lay public to train breast cancer advocates. The course covers the basics of cancer biology, genetics, epidemiology, research design and advocacy, and provides a foundation of scientific knowledge upon which participants can strengthen and empower themselves as activists. Taught by renowned research faculty, this is a unique opportunity for those interested in learning more about working as an NBCC research advocate as well as providing the tools for activists.

NBCC Project Lead 2018 is winding up in San Diego today. I've had six incredible days of learning with 42 people, including 8 strong mets survivors (Victoria and Chiara are shown here), 10 dynamic Black women, and one other man. We all have one goal, to advocate for those living with all stages of breast cancer.
