Strategies for Health After Breast Cancer
Breast cancer deaths are 38 percent higher in African-American women than in white women. This 30-minute educational video addresses the special challenges faced by African-American breast cancer survivors and features survivors discussing their experiences with diagnosis, treatment, follow-up care and support group networks. It also presents guidelines to help cancer survivors make a plan of follow-up care that promotes a healthy lifestyle and helps to prevent cancer recurrence.
The video features Cynthia L. Drogula, M.D., F.A.C.S., a breast cancer surgeon at the University of Maryland Greenebaum Cancer Center, and Stacy Garrett-Ray, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., formerly the medical director of the Baltimore City Cancer Program.
The video was produced as part of a research study led by Renee Royak-Schaler, Ph.D., funded by Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Read the news release.
