Taste for the Cure 2018: A Taste of Science

CCMI is supporting the UCSF Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center in Taste for the Cure 2018, an informational community event to complement patient care. This is a day of exploring food, science, and breast health.
Along with breast care panels, join us for science and cooking demonstrations, healthy food tastings and updates on trials and programs available through the Breast Care Center. CCMI scientists will offer a hands-on science activity and answer participants' questions about our research. This educational event is free and open to all. Please join us!
