Tigerlily Foundation and Guiding Researchers & Advocates to Scientific Partnerships (GRASP) partner to host a bi-monthly mini-symposia to shine a light on the experiences of Black women with breast cancer through two conversations: #KnowMoreDisparities & #PullUpASeat
- #KnowMoreDisparities: Conversations facilitated ‘for and by’ Black women will create a safe space for honest conversations with Black physicians, medical clinicians and patient experts to discuss their experiences of health inequality, implicit racial bias and lessons learned.
- #PullUpASeat: Two weeks after #KnowMoreDisparities we come back together for a #PullUpASeat discussion co-hosted by a Black Keynote physician / clinician and Black patient experts who will facilitate a conversation with non-black medical professionals to shine a light on the experience of black women with breast cancer.
Mission: To leave each participant with actionable next steps that will hold non-black medical professionals accountable and strengthen patient confidence in medical and research institutions. A one-page summary will be shared post-symposia that outline these actionable next steps.
