Parity Project

In early 2013, CAI was selected by Dr. Paul Goss, Director of Breast Cancer Research at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center (MGHCC) and Director of Avon Breast Cancer Center of Excellence to conduct a research and evaluation project that examined the relationship between pregnancy, lactation and breast cancer. Funded by the Avon Foundation for Women, CAI worked with MGHCC on two of the three aims of the evaluation project. The purpose of Aim I was to review and summarize the epidemiologic literature on the association between pregnancy and breast cancer, while the purpose of Aim II was to review and synthesize the results obtained from Avon-funded research projects studying the association between pregnancy, lactation and breast cancer carried out from 2006 to the present. Results of this research will be published in the future. For more information, click here.
