Black/African American Same Race Session: Bias & the Need for Systemic Change in Healthcare

This Black/African American panel will share insights from their various perspectives and guide the audience toward possibility. We all know it’s beyond time that healthcare systems change to prevent the unacceptable death rate of Black women diagnosed with breast, ovarian, uterine/endometrial and metastatic cancers. The question is no longer why is it taking so long, but what can we do about it starting now?
