How to Reduce Breast Cancer and Improve Survivorship among Latinas [Tweetchat]

October 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Breast cancer doesn’t impact every women the same.

Among Latinas, breast cancer is the No. 1 cancer killer. Many Latinas face unique survivorship journeys, shaped by cultural and spiritual beliefs and struggles with barriers to care, screening, patient-doctor communication, and other social determinants of health.

To recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), let’s use #SaludTues on Oct. 27, 2020, to tweet about the latest progress in Latina breast cancer data and research, the importance of breast cancer screening, and tips and stories for prevention and survivorship!
