State Advocacy Day

ANNUAL STATE ADVOCACY DAY AT THE STATE CAPITOL, APRIL 27, 2017

YOUR VOICE MATTERS!

Join us at the State Capitol in Madison for face-to-face conversations with legislators on policy that’s important to the breast cancer community. 

We will be talking about the importance of access statewide to the Wisconsin Well Woman Program, which provides free screening and treatment to lower-income women. This program was downsized in 2015 to only … coordinators and … providers. It was downsized partly in anticipation of people moving to Insurance Marketplace created by the Affordable Care Act. With the ACA targeted for replacement, we need to make sure the WWWP is prepared to care for Wisconsin women needing their services.

We will be talking about the need for increased funding to the Wisconsin Cancer Registry.

We will be talking about healthy lifestyle choices that reduce the risk of breast cancer. In particular, we will talk about the links between childhood obesity and breast cancer, and between binge alcohol drinking and breast cancer.
