Webinar: How to Make Your Voice Heard in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Treatment

Sadly, breast cancer impacts our Latina community.

Latinas are more likely than White women to be diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), an aggressive type, according to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Join us for “Making Your Voice Heard in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Treatment,” our 30-minute webinar that is available on-demand starting on Wednesday, April 17, 2024.

Hear the latest TNBC treatments and how Latinas deal with the difficult cancer journey.

A doctor who specializes in treating breast cancer, a nurse practitioner, and a patient with breast cancer will explain how to manage side effects, connect with others in the breast-cancer community, and be your own best advocate.

Webinar speakers include:

  • Claudia Tellez, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine, Northwestern University.
  • Loyda Braithwaite, MSN, RN, AGPCNP-BC, AOCNP, University of Wisconsin – Carbone Cancer Center.
  • Claudia Gonzalez, person living with metastatic TNBC.

Topics to be explored:

  • What medications are approved for TNBC?
  • What makes the treatment options different?
  • What side effects come with cancer treatment?
  • What are clinical trials? Are they right for me?
  • Differences in TNBC care in the Latina population
  • Communicating with your care team, community, and family
  • Finding support, education, and advocacy

“After watching this program, you will be more prepared to face the challenges of TNBC,” said Dr. Amelie G. Ramirez, director of Salud America! at UT Health San Antonio, which is collaborating on the webinar with MedLive and Surviving Breast Cancer.
