Why are Breast Cancers More Aggressive in Black Women?
There are striking disparities in survival rates between Black and white breast cancer patients. Our guest speakers, Christine Ambrosone, PhD, and Song Yao, MD, PhD, have led a team that has done extensive research to understand the causes of why certain cancers are more aggressive in Black women. They have developed a hypothesis that the higher rate of aggressive tumors in Black women when compared with white women might have something to do with their immune systems. We will get updates from their research and how we can work towards eliminating racial gaps in breast cancer survival.
