The problem: African-Americans are more likely to die from prostate and breast cancers and are less likely to be diagnosed early. The solution: will be discussed Thursday night at Zócalo Public Square. Go listen to Eleanor Hinton Hoytt, president and CEO of the Black Women's Health Imperative, Leticia Márquez-Magaña, biologist at the Health Equity Institute for Research, Practice, and Policy at San Francisco State University and Mignonne Guy, researcher at the Mayo Clinic Arizona, discuss possible solutions in a panel moderated by Daniel Weintraub, Editor, HealthyCal.org. Social stigma, psychological barriers, diversity among oncologists and other factors will surely be part of the talk.
