Black people diagnosed with breast cancer face unique challenges throughout their diagnoses. Despite increased “breast cancer awareness” among the public, issues of systemic racism, access to high-quality care, genetic differences, and other factors have caused dramatic disparities: Death rates are 40 percent higher among Black women than white women.
Living Beyond Breast Cancer presents the Knowledge is power series to empower Black people diagnosed with breast cancer and their caregivers with the practical knowledge to get the best care possible, while learning how to advocate to shrink the significant health disparities that exist.
Through live educational and support sessions and video content, participants will gain a deeper understanding of breast cancer, the role of clinical trials, and how to identify and address implicit or explicit bias in your care. The sessions will address how to hold effective conversations with healthcare professionals and practical steps individuals can take to get the care they need and deserve.
The speakers in this series will include oncologists, social workers, advocates, and researchers. We also encourage people to watch a pre-recorded interview with Dr. Karen Winkfield, Dr. Zanetta Lamar, and Dr. Tiffany Avery of the 3 Black Docs podcast, where they share their advice for Black people newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
