Breast cancer speaker series this weekend in Toronto

Rethink Breast Cancer is holding a speaker series this weekend at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

On Saturday, November 20, the session will be “What’s your story: The art of personal storytelling.” Documentary filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal, visual artist Sara Angelucci, and author Ruth Rakoff will share their experiences and talk about the issues they faced.

The promo poster says, “personal storytelling is an integral part of the human condition and a proven agent of healing. And yet, telling our stories in creative and

engaging ways can be extremely challenging and even infuriating.”

The session on Sunday, November 21 will be “The environmental link to breast cancer: An evidence based discussion” with Dr. Janet Gray, professor of psychology (neuroscience) and Director of the Program in Science, Technology, and Society at Vassar College. The talk will be preceeded by the film Living Downstream.
