Breast cancer survivors are one of the highest users of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). As the leading breast cancer organization in the world, Komen was eager to address the issue with science-based information and education to the millions of women they served.

We helped them navigate and understand the burgeoning market of these “therapies” and outline a strategic plan going forward.

We conducted market research with patients, held advisory boards with opinion leaders, and conducted a thorough review of the scientific literature. We provided a detailed roadmap on the CAM education they should provide, programs to develop and why, and the research priorities to fund. 

Impact

  • Created dedicated education portal on CAM therapies for breast cancer survivors

  • Funded and launched research on top therapies

  • Published research in The Journal of the Society of Integrative Oncology
