Misleading Labels - by star Sara Frawley
Many personal care product brands, from makeup to shampoo, print the words "natural" and "organic" across their products to make them seem safer, but these products may be just as bad for you. With so many different claims like "plant-free" and "free of", how can we know what they actually mean?

Peer-to-Peer Education
Our high school interns gave phenomenal presentations to research classes at the Huntington High School! They have learned so much through their time with us and have really developed their own voices to share what they have learned in writing and in person.
Next stop? Stimson Middle School and Finley Middle School!
Savvy Seniors
HBCAC was excited to visit the Town of Huntington Senior Center for our annual presentation. Thank you for inviting us back again and again to talk about different aspects of endocrine disrupting chemicals. The conversations are stimulating and we are proud to share our wealth of knowledge with all these amazing individuals in our community!
Great Minds Think Alike
HBCAC was honored to present this past week to the Citizens Advisory Council for Person's With Disabilities. Every time we meet with them we are amazed by how much we all learn from each other! The Town of Huntington residents certainly know their stuff and are always eager for more. We are proud to represent it!
Summer Sucess!
Subhana Zafar and Rachel Moss had the opportunity this part summer to work alongside researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. In November, we were thrilled to bring one of our students, Subhana, to the National Annual BCERP Conference! For the past several years BCERP has studied how chemicals in the environment may affect the timing of puberty, early puberty is one risk factor for breast cancer later on in life. Researchers, Breast Cancer Activists, and the general public convened in Monrovia, California, shared the current research on environmental health, listened to Dr Linda Birnbaum framing the State of the Science and reaffirmed the need for Guardians of the Future in Environmental Public Health.
Sending Love With Scarves
HBCAC was proud to be a part of the Stitches of Love Chapter of Care to Knit event at Harborfields Library on Saturday October 14th! 
It was a joy to see so many women gathering together for a good cause and make fabulous scarves for women in our community diagnosed with breast cancer. Every gift and every effort makes a difference. Thank you so much ladies!
