We are focused on strategic partnerships because we believe that collaborative synergy is a powerful force. If your group is focused on the role that disruptive environmental chemicals have on cancer and/or other types of disease, we want to hear from you. And if your organization is focused on finding a cure for cancer, please don’t hesitate to contact us, because we want to find ways to work with other organizations that are focused on the same goal.
Some of our strategic partners are listed below:

The organization has also empowered American families with easy-to-use, data-driven tools to help reduce their exposure to potentially harmful ingredients in foods, drinking water, cosmetics and other household products.
