Ohio to Join Nationwide Campaign Challenging U.S. to Close the Gaps in

Breast Cancer Care, Survival

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, January 22, the Ohio Affiliates of Susan G. Komen for the Cure will host two events to launch Ohio's participation in the Komen Community Challenge, a nationwide tour to close the gaps in breast cancer care that cause some women to die of the disease more than others.

A morning press conference and site tour will be held at the OhioHealth Riverside Breast Health Center in order to give the media a clear picture of the state of breast cancer in Ohio. A luncheon and community forum on "closing the gap" in breast cancer care will follow at the Ohio Statehouse Atrium. The forum will include community leaders and breast cancer advocates and will be moderated by Heather Pick, anchor of 10TV and breast cancer survivor. The purpose of these events is to educate Ohio residents about the state of breast cancer in Ohio and to motivate them to call for legislative action that will improve access to breast health care.

Nationwide, one in eight women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. In 2007 more than 6,700 Ohio women were diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 1,800 women died from the disease. Ohio is ranked 4th in the nation in breast cancer mortality. Low-income and under-insured women are more likely to die from the disease, whereas those with access to early diagnosis have a 98 percent chance for survival.

9:30 A.M. Press Conference and tour of Riverside Health Center

12:30 P.M. Lunch and Community Forum

WHAT: "Close the Gap" Press conference and tour of the OhioHealth
