Health Equity Task Force

Patients, physicians, and community leaders all have a role to play in eradicating health disparities among African-Americans. Bringing together the perspectives of clinicians, patients, caretakers, and those who’ve lost loved ones to prostate cancer, ZERO’s Health Equity Task Force is playing a crucial role in advising and directing programs and communications to ultimately eliminate outcome disparities amongst the African American community.
