The group Nurses Affecting Change is working to improve survival rates for black women with breast cancer who live in Milwaukee's poorest neighborhoods. They offer personalized breast health education and breast cancer screenings. The group has partnered with ABCD: After Breast Cancer Diagnosis to further this mission. Joining us to discuss this incredibly important topic is Ellen Friebert Schupper from ABCD.
