About Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force
The mission of the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force is to save women’s lives by eliminating health disparities in Illinois, through the lens of breast cancer. We address women’s health holistically with the goal of eliminating inequities in prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship for all women.
When the Task Force started in 2008, Chicago was one of the worst states in the nation for breast cancer racial mortality disparities. Today, Chicago is #1 in improving survival for Black women – from one of the worst to first!
Building on this success, we will expand our mission to provide health equity for all women of color across Chicago, and develop a national template, using the Task Force’s unique and proven model that blends both a scientifically rigorous approach with community engagement and direct patient services.
