Disparities in Breast Cancer: A Biology, Health Services and Solutions Story — UNC Cancer Network RN and Allied Health Lecture

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online telehealth lecture with Katherine Reeder-Hayes, MD, MBA, MSc, and Stephanie Wheeler, PhD, MPH. This seminar will review the epidemiology of breast cancer disparities and cost of care as a potential determinant of differentiated access to and outcomes of care. We will conclude with potential solutions and future research opportunities.

Disparities in Breast Cancer:
A Biology, Health Services and Solutions Story

 

Lecture Description

This lecture will explore the impact of racial disparities on breast cancer treatment outcomes, especially the disproportionate financial burden on black patients.

Lecture Objectives:
  • Describe the epidemiology of racial disparities in breast cancer and identity the most affected subtypes
  • Discuss how tumor biology impacts racial differences in breast cancer
  • Identify evidence for disparities in treatment access and cost as factor in racial outcome differences
