So Much To Be Done:

The Writings of Breast Cancer Activist Barbara Brenner

presented by Gerald Epstein and Susie Lampert

 

Barbara Brenner, a Smith alum, was already a political activist, a progressive lawyer and  "hell-raiser" when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She founded Breast Cancer Action and became a tireless advocate for better patient information, delving into the corporate connections to breast cancer research and treatment.  She was candid about her own experience and compassionate about the suffering of others. She survived two bouts of breast cancer but later developed ALS and died in 2013. Her book will interest not only breast cancer patients and survivors, but anyone interested in the politics of health care.

Gerald Epstein, professor of Economics at UMass,  and Susie Lampert, Barbara's long-time partner, will speak about Barbara and read from her writings.
