This presentation by Sister Abi* aims to empower women with information to help defeat breast cancer. It will cover:

* The reality of risk rates for black women; how white women skew the risk indicators
* 5 steps you can take to reduce your risk ,
* How not breast feeding can increase your risk
* What food and lifestyles increase liability
* The signs that ensure early detection.
* How such information is made difficult to access (there has only ever been one study on how cancer affects black women in the UK)

*Sister Abi holds a first degree in Medical Bio-chemistry, a masters in Clinical bio-chemistry and is pursuing another masters in Public Health. She is currently Programme Manager for an infomatics project for a major cancer charity and will be in the next edition of the New African Woman magazine for her cancer prevention work.
