U.S. to Close the Gaps in Breast Cancer Care, Survival

DETROIT, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- On October 23 and 25, Komen Detroit Race for the Cure will host events to launch Metro Detroit's participation in the Komen Community Challenge.

On October 23, physicians and executives from five of metro Detroit's top hospitals, breast cancer survivors and elected officials will come together for a Community Forum at the Max M. Fisher Center to discuss strategies for addressing high mortality rates in Wayne County and disparities that prevent low-income women from receiving quality care. Earlier that day, the Komen On the Go(TM) community education vehicle will be at University of Michigan - Dearborn, where volunteers will answer questions and offer information about breast health. On October 25, Komen On the Go(TM) will be at Wayne State University.

Nationwide, one in eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. Many Americans -- racial and ethnic minorities, low income women and those with little or no health insurance -- are less likely to receive quality cancer care and are more likely to die from the disease.

Tuesday, October 23, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

WHAT: 'Close the Gap' Community Forum. Reception with silent auction

followed by discussion and interactive community forum.
