In order to access the fourth floor of the Cancer Center Building, visitors enter the Cancer Center on the "ground floor" otherwise known as Level B2. This is the main lobby. Patient / Visitor elevators are across from the Information Desk. Take the elevators to Level 2. Exit and go to the left and then turn right, proceeding down the hallway. You'll see the hallway goes to the left, but there's also a large doorway to the right. Go through the doorway and then turn to the left, entering the elevator lobby. Use these elevators to access Floor 4. Please see the map of level 2 for more information.

The Breast Cancer and Advocacy Committee members are breast cancer survivors who provide input to University of Michigan researchers as they design new studies. According to Maria Lyzen, committee co-chair, "Our goal is to represent the patients' point of view: How can we make it easier for patients to participate in a clinical trial? Could a researcher consider reducing the number of scans required for a study so that a patient would only have to travel to the Cancer Center three times instead of four times?"

If you're a breast cancer survivor, please consider attending the meeting and adding your input!
