Breast Cancer Disparities Roundtable

African American Young Woman

SUSAN G. KOMEN® AND TIDEWATER LEADERS ADDRESS “APPALLING” BREAST CANCER DEATH RATES FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN 

NORFOLK – May 2016 – African-American women in the Tidewater area and nationwide are more than 40 percent more likely to die of breast cancer than white women. To change those numbers, Susan G. Komen President and CEO Dr. Judy Salerno is convening community leaders in the Tidewater community and nine other cities to explore recommendations and strategies to achieve health equity for African-American women facing breast cancer. 

Stay Tuned for more about our continuing efforts about this important local issue.
