The advice provided by the Committee will assist in ensuring scientific quality, timeliness, utility, and dissemination of credible appropriate messages and resource materials.

Matters To Be Discussed: The agenda will include discussions on approaches to increase awareness of clinicians/practitioners regarding topics such as breast health, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer in young women; and information needs and delivery mechanisms for women at higher risks for developing breast cancer. These discussions will be directed toward the final review and approval of formal recommendations on these topics.

Agenda items are subject to change as priorities dictate.
