The fight against breast cancer is a public battle involving
health access, health education, support for research, and
long-term fundraising commitments from both the public and
private sectors. This half-hour program is aimed at motivating
viewers to join in the campaign for public advocacy. This
campaign is aimed at educating legislators, the media, foundations,
and individuals of the increasing need for funding and resources
to reduce mortality rates by developing early detection
devices and comprehensive care plans that serve all women
regardless of socioeconomic status or racial/ethnic background.
The panel will address key national issues impacting breast
cancer and treatment including Medicare legislation, disparities
in care for uninsured, and the stability of the provider
systems and Federal funding sources. Additional areas to
be considered include New Jersey-specific topics such as
the Governor's Cancer Control Plan and the value of the
Patient Navigator Program, a one-year pilot program in Jersey
City, and young women and breast cancer.
