Project Team 

The project team is composed of two firefighter groups, San Francisco Firefighter Cancer Prevention Foundation  and the United Fire Service Women ; researchers from UC-Berkeley, UC-San Francisco and the Silent Spring Institute; and environmental health advocates fromCommonweal  and the Breast Cancer Fund .

We have also assembled an expert advisory panel that we can consult with on everything from data collection to sharing the study findings.
