October is breast cancer awareness month, and Byllye and Ngina are asking the experts the question that may not come to mind during this month of pink, ribbons and “get a mammogram” messages:

What are the politics of breast cancer research?


Join the hosts of “First Wednesday” on Wednesday, October 6, at 2 p.m EST as they seek to answer this important question with nationally-respected breast health advocate Zora Brown and a co-founder of the Intercultural Cancer Council, the nation’s largest multicultural health policy group, Dr. Lovell Jones.

In December 2009, the Black health community was shocked by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Report on breast cancer screening. Why? Because of the potential impact the recommendations could have on the health of Black women. Many questions followed:

How will these recommendations likely affect breast cancer survival rates of Black women and address the earlier and more aggressive form of breast cancer that many of us face? Are there better breast cancer screening behaviors for us?

Join us on Wednesday, October 6, at 2 p.m. EST to learn more! This show will challenge what we “thought” we learned from research and inspire change in the science of research.

Zora Brown and Dr. Lovell Jones want to hear from you. Share your comments and questions with them by submiting them prior to the show to asktheexpert@blackwomenshealth.org or asking them live on the radio by calling 646-381-4662 beginning at 2 p.m. EST.
