Inequities in Breast Cancer: Race and Place Matter

May 2012

Inequities in breast cancer risk and outcomes vary among different racial and ethnic communities and are well documented. In our efforts to address and end this disease, health activists, practitioners, and legislators must focus on the social and economic context in which the disease arises. As a society, we can affect and potentially avoid these unjust inequities in breast cancer.
