National Minority Quality Forum’s Cancer Stage Shifting Initiative (CSSI) is pleased to share that Adjoa Kyerematen, NMQF VP of Communications and Public Affairs, has joined the American Cancer Society National Breast Cancer Roundtable (ACS NBCRT) Steering Committee.
ACS NBCRT, established in 2022, is a national coalition of member organizations with a collective aim to accelerate progress across the breast cancer continuum through strategic partnerships to eliminate disparities and reduce mortality.
The Roundtable works to ensure all women have access to quality screening and treatment, including Black women and women in other historically excluded communities, and to address the social and emotional needs of patients and their families.
CSSI’s mission is to move from late-stage to early-stage diagnosis and treatment of cancer, improving cancer care and reducing cancer deaths for all, with a particular focus on equity and underrepresented populations ACS NBCRT and CSSI are both aligned with President Biden’s Cancer Moonshot 2.0 – a renewed call to action towards reducing the cancer death rate by at least 50 percent during the next 25 years.
