In honor of National Minority Health Month in April, the Physicians Committee is teaming up with My Style Matters, an Atlanta-based community support system for cancer survivors, to answer these questions.


•    Event Date: April 8, 2021
•    Event Time: 7 p.m. Eastern Time


We're bringing together a panel of experts to explore the lifestyle factors, exposures, and barriers unique to Black women and breast cancer—and how you can reduce your risk. Panelists will discuss nutrition and lifestyle strategies, as well as chemical exposures from beauty products marketed to Black women and other sources, and how to find safer alternatives. They will also discuss the systemic barriers Black women face.
