Divine 9 to host Breast Cancer Awareness panel to highlight health disparities in Black women
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an organization is preparing to highlight health disparities impacting Black women.
The Divine 9 will host an awareness panel at 6 p.m. at the Whitby Castle in Rye.
The panelists will include Debra Lee, the former chief executive officer of BET, along with other top medical experts and cancer survivors.
“One-hundred Black women are dying three times higher than white women because of breast cancer so hence there is an epidemic,” says Dr. Traci Alexander, a member of the Westchester & Rockland D9.
News 12’s Shannon Lanier will emcee the event.
