Most of us are familiar with the serious health inequities that exist among different racial, ethnic, and cultural groups when it comes to illness. Breast cancer is no exception. Join BCAction Program Manager Jayla’s conversation with four podcast guests: Marissa Thomas, co-founder of For the Breast of Us, Darci Green, Executive Director of Latinas Contra Cancer, Caroline Nguyen, Program Assistant at the California Healthy Nail Salon Collaborative, and Dr. Krystal Redman, Executive Director at BCAction. This discussion covers the unique challenges and programmatic priorities specific to the Black, Latinx, and Asian communities of breast cancer activists while exploring the landscape of disparities, the disconnect between health care systems and communities of color, and the limitations of screening and mammography to address these inequities.
