The 11th Annual Conference: Breast Cancer and African Americans (BCAA) hosted and sponsored by the Stanford Cancer Institute’s Office of Cancer Health Equity and Community Engagement. The conference will be held virtually again this year for everyone’s convenience and safety. The purpose of BCAA is to help eliminate breast cancer disparities in Black/African American populations in the Greater SF Bay Area and surrounding communities through the dissemination of high quality, timely and culturally-tailored cancer information, education, and resources.
Despite the progress made in breast cancer, Black women in the U.S. are still being diagnosed with breast cancer at younger ages, at later stages, and with more aggressive forms of breast cancer ultimately resulting in higher death rates from the disease. You are invited to join for an informative dialogue with clinicians, health professionals, researchers, cancer survivors, caregivers, advocates, and other key stakeholders to discuss topics covering the spectrum of breast health and cancer including, but not limited to breast self-awareness, breast cancer risk, early detection, nutrition/healthy eating, physical activity, treatment options, clinical trials research, survivorship, stress management, and advocacy.
