The Circle of Influence is comprised of individuals who make a direct and substantial impact on conquering breast cancer by advancing the work and the advocacy of Susan G. Komen San Diego. Members influence funding of breast cancer programs and research in the San Diego region. To make informed decisions, members are made aware of funding options, given opportunities to vet those options, and participate in the evaluation and outcome of annual giving. There are opportunities throughout the year to join Komen San Diego programs and events. Members of the Circle of Influence may participate as much or as little as desired.
