Breast Cancer Screening Awareness

On Sunday, October 30, Dr. Kulkarni of the University of Chicago Radiology Breast Section, Leslie Ferris Yerger of My Density Matters, and Allison Liu of Bridgeport Free Clinic collaborated with the Chinese Christian Union Church to host an event for church members about breast cancer screening.

As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we had a discussion about recommendations for screening, education about breast density and how that impacts next steps, research studies provided by the University of Chicago for patients without insurance or patients at high risk, and a Q&A session with members of the community. Mandarin and Cantonese on-site translations were provided with the help of undergraduates Ingrid Li and Jamie Zeng through Bridgeport Free Clinic.
