The Sister Network Inc. 2015 National African American Breast Cancer tour will stop in Detroit for a one-day conference later this month.
“Sisters Network is always looking for a unique approach to share or bring breast cancer information directly to the community,” said Karen E. Jackson, Founder/CEO, Sisters Network® Inc. “The 2015 National African American breast cancer ten-city conference tour is a unique and effective outreach initiative for our organization.”
Breast cancer survivors, clinicians, caregivers and the community are invited to attend.
Conference workshops include “Metastatic & Triple Negative Breast Cancer,” presented by Janell Clark, APN-BC, MSN, MBA, Nurse Practitioner CTCA, Eastern Regional Medical Center and “The Importance of Minority Participation in Clinical Trials,” presented by Richard J.
