The Mecklenburg Breast Health Coalition was founded in 2013 and is hosting this forum to create community collaboration around breast health/breast cancer resources and important practices to improve time to care and ultimately patient outcomes.

The program will provide tools for providers to help guide patients to available breast health resources, such as the Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP). The discussion will also highlight key barriers to care for community members, particularly individuals who are uninsured/underinsured.
