Sharsheret serves on the Advisory Committee on Breast Cancer in Young Women, a federal advisory committee established by the Affordable Care Act, charged with developing initiatives to increase knowledge of breast health and breast cancer among women, particularly among those under the age of 40 and those at heightened risk for developing the disease.

Additionally, Sharsheret has been identified as the model of culturally relevant support for young Jewish breast cancer survivors by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  

In recognition of our work and expertise, we have been selected to receive federal funding as part of multi-year cooperative agreements with the CDC and to participate in special government studies.

  • The LINK Program – Enhancing and Sustaining Structured Support Services for Jewish Young Women Diagnosed with Breast Cancer: CDC Cooperative Agreement to evaluate, enhance, and scale up interventions for young Jewish breast cancer survivors.
  • Thriving Again – Life After Breast Cancer for Young Jewish Women: CDC Cooperative Agreement to address unmet structured support services and education needs of young Jewish breast cancer survivors.
  • Breast Cancer in Young Women Project: Evaluation Study, conducted with Sisters Network, Inc., to identify, strengthen, and promote real-world, evidence-based interventions that provide psychosocial and reproductive health support to young
