The goal of this symposium is to bring together global public health actors, advocates, clinicians and researchers on breast cancer prevention to discuss the impact of environmental factors such as foods, stress, pollutants and exercise on the genome. The symposium will take us on a journey across disciplines for interactions at the interface of biology, medicine, behavior and environmental policies. Concretely, we will explore the impact of new knowledge in the genome on prevention interventions and the need for biomarkers, health and food policy and practices, and socioeconomic and cultural contexts in which environmental factors come into play.

Breast cancer prevention is a global public health challenge that requires: Utilization of the diversity of diet: environment and epigenomic pool globally; A multidisciplinary approach: biology, epidemiology, medicine, nutrition, social sciences and communication, education, and public policy; Contributions from scientists, clinicians, and advocates; Sustained international effort in research and action.
