Abstract

On November 8th, 2001, faculty from Universities, government and non-profit community organizations met to determine how, separately and together, they could address disparities in survival of women with breast cancer in the diverse patient populations served by their institutions. Studies and initiatives directed at increasing access had to date met modest success. The day was divided into three sections, defining the issues, model programs, government initiatives and finally potential collaborations. By publishing these proceedings, interested readers will be aware of the ongoing programs and studies and can contact the investigators for more information. The Avon Foundation funded this symposium to bring together interested investigators to share programmatic experiences, data and innovative approaches to the problem.
