Surgeons with a special interest in the treatment of breast disease
At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:
  • Understand the reasons for disparities for outcomes between African-American women and White women diagnosed with breast cancer and what are some strategies that can be taken to mitigate these disparities.
  • Understand the economic impact that a breast cancer diagnosis can have on women diagnosed with breast cancer and what surgeons can do to help alleviate the financial burden.
  • Understand the disparities in delay in cancer treatment and strategies to address these differences.
All breast cancer patients should have access to quality care. This one-hour webinar will address factors contributing to disparities in care and incorporate ways surgeons can help combat treatment challenges and ensure all populations have equitable access to quality care.
