The Board of Directors and staff of the Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research are pleased to announce that A+E Networks has tapped Naz Sykes to be the Senior Director of Public Affairs for Lifetime Television. We are proud that the most powerful media brand targeted to women recognized not only Naz’s talent and enthusiasm but also the nature, depth and success of her experience with the Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.
Over the past eight years, Naz has served as the Executive Director of the Foundation and has been an indomitable force at driving our mission through the development and implementation of novel programs to democratize research, including the Love/Avon Army of Women and more recently, the Health of Women Study. These programs have become a benchmark not only for breast cancer research, but for all disease oriented non-profits. She has represented the Foundation locally and nationally and has been a catalyst for collaborations between non-profit organizations both in breast cancer and beyond.
We are proud of all that Naz has accomplished and we hope you will join us in wishing her well in her new role.
The Foundation has a strong leadership team in place and will continue our work to Act with Love for a future without breast cancer, through conducting, collaborating in and encouraging novel research to find the cause of breast cancer and ways to prevent it. In addition, we will strive to bring the voice of the public to the research agenda, identifying the consequences of treatment for breast cancer as well as potential causes of the disease.
Though we are sad to see Naz go, we look forward to working together with her in her new role and to continuing to collaborate on our shared mission to end breast cancer.
