Twitter chat on breast cancer Nov. 15

From the CDC:

Join CDC and BlackDoctor.org for a Vital Signs Twitter chat about breast cancer disparities on Thursday, November 15, at 2:00 PM ET. Participants will talk about differences in screening, treatment, and quality of care.

The chat will be led by Lisa Richardson, MD, MPH, Associate Director for Science in CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, and Arica White, PhD, MPH, Senior Service Fellow.

Drs. Richardson and White will answer questions and share insights from their work in the field. Dr. Richardson served as the medical director of CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer and Early Detection Program, which is the only organized screening program for low-income and uninsured women in the United States. Dr. White’s research explores racial, ethnic, and geographic differences in breast and colorectal cancer treatment and survival.

Are you a health care provider? We hope you’ll share your strategies for making sure patients get the screening and treatments they need on time. Are you a breast cancer survivor? What advice do you wish someone had shared with you? Join the chat and share your advice with others.

 Follow the chat using the hashtag #VSChat.
