Over the past few years, the WCPP has partnered with local, statewide, and national health and civic organizations to broaden its focus. According to Linda Griffith, president of the nonprofit organization, the current mission of the WCPP is to "promote educational and public safety activities regarding the environment, the incidence of cancer, and health-related issues. Our goal is to reduce health-risk factors for families of Wellesley and surrounding communities." In fact, if you take a look at the WCPP's extensive and informative website, you will find information not just about cancer, but about how foods, stress, and the environment can affect your child's health. It also includes facts about healthy drinking water. 132 WCPP Board members l to r: Phyllis Yawitt, Sara Frost Azzam, Kathy McGraw Bentley, Anastasia Karakasidou, Maria Kelleher, Linda Griffith, Theresa Keresztes, and Susan Hoffman WellesleyWeston Magazine | winter 2012/2013 COUR TESY OF WELLESLEY CANCER PREVENTION PROJECT
