11th Annual Conference: Breast Cancer and African Americans (BCAA)
Despite the progress made in breast cancer, Black women in the U.S. are still being diagnosed with breast cancer at younger ages, at later stages, and with more aggressive forms of breast cancer ultimately resulting in higher death rates from the disease.
Join an informative dialogue with clinicians, health professionals, researchers, cancer survivors, caregivers, advocates, and other key stakeholders to discuss topics covering the spectrum of breast health and cancer including, but not limited to breast self-awareness; breast cancer risk; early detection; nutrition/healthy eating; physical activity; treatment and clinical trials research; survivorship; stress management; and advocacy.
