Breast Cancer Task Force Updates Advocacy Guide

The Health Law Section's Breast Cancer Task Force Announces Update of the Legal Advocacy Guide

The ABA Health Law Section’s Breast Cancer Task Force is pleased to announce the first major update of the Breast Cancer Legal Advocacy Guide since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was enacted in 2010. This complimentary guide is now available for download at

The Breast Cancer Legal Advocacy Guide is intended to serve as a resource to help train lawyers who may provide legal services to women with breast cancer. A special thank you to Chair Hilary Weckstein, and the rest of the members of the Task Force's Executive Committee, who committed countless hours to this comprehensive update. The Task Force would also like to recognize the contributions of the staff attorneys at the Cancer Legal Resource Center (CLRC).
