I have been selected to sit on a peer review panel for breast cancer research grants through the Department of Defense. Panels mainly consist of doctors and scientists but they do have at least two breast cancer survivors or caregivers on each panel.
I will have to review and score 8 grant proposals before I go in July. Then we basically lock ourselves in a room for two days, debate our opinions and decide who gets the monies. It is going to be a lot of work but I am so thrilled to have been selected and it is a wonderful opportunity!
