The Coalition of Blacks Against Breast Cancer

The Coalition of Blacks Against Breast Cancer is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Although it’s not a Mayo organization, the Phoenix group was founded by Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Michele Halyard and Marion Kelly. It provides updated cancer diagnosis and treatment information and prevention through a combination of community outreach, open dialogue surrounding cancer, and resources. The death rate of African-American breast cancer patients is 40% higher than other ethnicities. We’ll talk to Dr. Halyard, radiation oncologist and dean of Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine, Arizona Campus, and co-founder of the Coalition of Blacks Against Breast Cancer, more about the group.
