Representing: Patient/Caregiver Advocacy
Kendall Bergman is the Manager of Scientific Programs at Susan G. Komen. During her tenure at Susan G. Komen, she has managed, enhanced, and expanded the Komen Advocates in Science (AIS) program. AIS members are trained research and patient advocates who are survivors, co-survivors, and others vested in Komen’s mission to end breast cancer forever as a life-threatening disease. The AIS program and its members work to ensure that the patient perspective and voice are included in all aspects of the scientific research dialogue, including participating in peer review of Komen Research Grants and sitting on panels as Komen representatives.
