Breast Cancer in Women of Color


The John and Margaret Krupa Distinguished Chair, Baptist Health Medical Group


In Partnership with:

South Florida Sun Sentinel’s Party in Pink

Statistics show every year thousands of women are diagnosed with later stage breast and cervical cancer simply because they don’t have access to care. In the Breast Cancer in Women of Color Virtual Town Hall we will discuss the inequities that exist and highlight the example of non-profit organizations like the Promise Fund that are working to change this. This unique event will be LIVE Tuesday, October 5th at 7PM on AllHealthGo’s Facebook and YouTube pages and streamed on

Special thanks to the Eunice Joyce Gardiner Foundation for their generous philanthropy.
