Mission Statement of the
Breast Cancer Prevention Institute:

The Breast Cancer Prevention Institute is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation, which educates healthcare professionals and the general public through research publications, lectures, and the internet, on ways to reduce breast cancer incidence.

History of the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute

The Breast Cancer Prevention Institute (BCPI) was co-founded in 1999 by Drs. Joel Brind, Angela Lanfranchi, John T. Bruchalski and William L. Toffler. Dr. Brind, a scientist and researcher, was aware of risk reduction strategies not widely known to the public and healthcare professionals. Dr. Lanfranchi, a breast cancer surgeon, saw the incidence of breast cancer increasing in young women. She wanted to see this trend reversed. Dr. Bruchalski, an Obstetrician-Gynecologist and Dr. Toffler, a Family Practice Physician and Professor of Family Medicine, saw the need for their patients to know about the ABC link, and was alarmed at the lack of information available.

Dr. Peter Mazolewski, a general surgeon, joined the Board of Directors in 2002. He has already joined Dr. Brind and Dr. Lanfranchi in giving lectures to professional and lay audiences on the breast cancer link.

Since its inception, BCPI has completed and presented its first research project in poster form at a major national breast cancer conference. It has developed numerous resources to educate both lay and professional groups, including brochures, booklets and audio and video tapes. Its board members have lectured to numerous lay and professional groups, as well as participated in radio and television interviews.
