A Town Hall Conversation with ZERO’s Racial Disparities Task Force
September 30th, 2021 @ 10am EST
Sponsored by Pfizer, AstraZeneca & Janssen
Black men are 1.8 times more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 2.2 times more likely to die from the disease. Recent research suggests that these differences in health outcomes are likely caused by several factors within the U.S. healthcare system including access to care, insurance status, racial biases, and distrust in the medical system – it cannot be solely explained by genetic differences.
Bring your thoughts and questions and be part of an interactive discussion with our Racial Disparities Task Force Co-Chairs, Robert Ginyard and Dr. Kelvin Moses. They’ll be joined by ZERO’s new Vice President of Health Equity, Dr. Reggie Tucker-Seeley to discuss the progress that has been made since the launch of the Task Force and the road map forward.
