==========================================

HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT BIOMONITORING?  BCERF recognizes the growing 
interest in the emerging  fields of biomonitoring and environmental 
monitoring. We added a new section to our web site focused on these 
topics. See the slide show from Dr. Suzanne Snedeker's distance 
learning session about biomonitoring. Read questions and answers. 
Pursue further information from our list of linked reports and sites. 
Our biomonitoring and environmental monitoring web page 
<http://envirocancer.cornell.edu/learning/biomonitor/biomonitor.cfm> 
is now available.

==========================================

NEW BREAST CANCER MAPS AND DATA FOR  NEW YORK STATE  BCERF updated 
our list of breast cancer maps and data for New York State. We now 
include 1997-2001 and 1998-2002. The  maps are created using data 
from the New York State Department of Health Cancer Registry. The 
maps of cancer incidence and mortality are color-coded by county. To 
see the new maps and data, visit our maps page 
<http://envirocancer.cornell.edu/map/NYinfo.cfm>.

==========================================

DID YOU MISS THE CANCER AND ENVIRONMENT FORUM?  The Cancer and 
Environment Forum on Sept. 30th in Albany,  New York was a 
well-attended and interesting event! We have posted a short summary 
of the forum and will soon be adding more details. Also, look for 
expanded coverage of  many topics raised at the forum in the  next 
edition of The  Ribbon. For a look at the most recent forum, visit 
our summary <http://envirocancer.cornell.edu/program/meetings.cfm>.
