Breast cancer screening has been heralded and criticized over the past decade for “shifting the cancer timeline.” Yet, in spite of these discussions and debates, mammography screening, clinical breast examination, and follow-up of abnormal results are deemed to be essential to breast health. Many institutions dedicated to breast cancer detection and control have asserted the importance of identifying populations at greatest risk of being less than adequately served.

This webinar will present participants with a brief overview of themes relevant to pursuit of Komen’s commitment to equity in breast cancer detection and control and a challenge to envision the populations, needs, opportunities and resources essential to effecting change within their immediate sphere of influence.

Following the completion of the webinar – participants will be able to:

  • Summarize national and regional trends relevant to breast cancer detection and control.
  • Highlight potential consequences of gaps/voids in breast care across the care continuum.
  • Identify populations of women among the medically underserved known to be in need of breast cancer awareness, understanding and screening.
  • Highlight emerging, promising and best practices to enhance understanding, screening/follow-up, treatment compliance and quality of life among medically underserved populations.
  • Discuss the relevance of networking, coordination and collaboration to the design of breast cancer reducing disparities among at-risk populations.
