THIRD IN A LIVE WEBINAR SERIES - NATIONAL STRATEGIES FOR CHANGE:
There is critical disparity in breast cancer outcomes and survivorship in Black women. Significant short and long-term physical and emotional consequences of breast cancer reduce quality of life for all breast cancer survivors. Black women experience greater incidence of these adverse treatment effects. Research is clear that rehabilitation and exercise significantly reduce these issues, increase quality of life and decrease breast cancer recurrence – but very few patients receive this care. The lack of access to specialized breast cancer rehabilitation is magnified in minority patients, resulting in even greater health inequity. This forum brings together experts in the field to open a conversation and propose solutions on this important topic. This forum will be of particular interest for Physicians, surgeons, rehabilitation professionals and other providers working in the oncology field. Stakeholders in health equity and breast cancer survivorship.
