Shahrokh Sheik recently elected to join the Board of Directors for the Los Angeles County Komen Foundation.
For over 15 years, the Komen Los Angeles County Affiliate has raised $8.9 million to provide community-based grants to local organizations providing breast cancer screening, education, and treatment services and to help fund national breast cancer research programs. Of all breast cancer foundations, Komen is the only organization where 75% of the net proceeds stay in the communities where they are raised. The remaining 25% of the net funds raised support Komen’s National Grant Program, which is regarded as the most innovative and responsive grant program in breast cancer research.
