Presentation Slides: Racial and Health Disparities in Breast Cancer

Dr. Lisa Newman, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Breast Care Center at the University of Michigan discusses disparities in breast cancer and suggest ways PPEs can address them.

Since 1985, October has been observed as National Breast Cancer Awareness month. For 30 years there have been efforts during the month that address education on risk factors and protective measures. But there are still major disparities in cancer prevention and cancer risk. Learn about why these disparities exist and what you can do to help reduce cancer risk in your communities.
