The Healthy Breast Program was developed by Sat Dharam Kaur, N.D., as first described in her books, A Call to Women: The Healthy Breast Program and Workbook, published in 2000; and The Complete Natural Medicine Guide to Breast Cancer, published in 2003. Sat Dharam has been educating women in aspects of the Healthy Breast Program since she graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1989, and now teaches the program internationally. She trains others to teach the program and co-founded the MammAlive Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports and coordinates Healthy Breast Educators and educates women globally in ways to reduce their risk of breast cancer.
