About the Event
The data tells a disturbing story. In the U.S., the mortality rate for non-Hispanic Black women with breast cancer is 40% higher than for non-Hispanic white women.1 And, while clinical trials help improve outcomes and survival, Black people represent only 3% to 6% of patients in all cancer clinical trials.2
How can we ensure Black people are better represented in cancer research? Finding the answer starts with patient voices.
Come and hear patient advocate, former RN and MBC thriver, Stephanie Walker, talk about the groundbreaking work she has done on the BECOME project and how each and every one of us can help the black voice get heard for clinical trial involvement. You won't want to miss this session.
