Nancy Buermeyer

Policy Implications Advisor

Senior Policy Strategist, Breast Cancer Fund

Nancy works with Congress advocating for federal policies that protect the public from toxic chemicals. Her current policy focus is strengthening the country’s broadest law governing synthetic chemicals – the Toxic Substances Control Act – and advocating for federal resources to support environmental health programs at the CDC and National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Nancy brings over twenty years of advocacy experience and a commitment to coalition building on issues ranging from employment discrimination to environmental health. As part of the WFBC team, she brings her policy strategy expertise to ensure that the results of the study are translated into policies at the local, state and federal level to better protect firefighters from toxic exposures.
