Don’t Let COVID Delay Your Mammogram

Cost:

Description:

The coronavirus will be in our communities longer than we anticipated. It is important that we do not put off health maintenance and important screenings like mammography. Doing so can lead to more advanced disease due to delay in diagnosis. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Black American women. Black women in the U.S. are about 40% more likely to die from breast cancer than white women and they are more likely to get breast cancer at a younger age. Research finds that Black women often have delays in follow-up care after mammograms due to lack of access.

Join us as we discuss breast cancer facts, myths, and resources available to women in Camden, NJ and Brooklyn, NY.
