National Breast Cancer Coalition Steps up Washington Lobbying

WASHINGTON--The National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) has announced its intention to lobby against congressional forces that want to reduce NIH funding. The coalition thus allies itself with professional societies that lobby Congress to increase federal funding for biomedical research.

The Coalition also plans to draft legislation designed to protect the privacy of individuals who test positive for the presence of cancer genes so that their access to health insurance coverage will not be put in jeopardy.
