Under her leadership, BCPP's advocacy efforts are playing an important role in making breast cancer prevention a priority in statehouses and the halls of congress and have resulted in the passage of some of the nation's most important environmental health legislation creating the nation's first municipal precautionary principle ordinance; and first statewide biomonitoring program to measure the pollution in people and cleaning product ingredient disclosure law. Janet also ran a successful national campaign that led to the 2008 passage of a federal ban on phthalates in kid's toys and childcare articles. Ms. Nudelman currently coordinates BCPP's Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and Cans Not Cancer Campaign.
