Webinar on breast cancer

This webinar for health professionals looks at breast cancer and diet, including how to reduce risk and address inequalities

MyNutriWeb logoVarious factors influence a person’s risk of developing breast cancer including age, lifestyle and family history. National screening programmes can detect breast cancer earlier, resulting in better outcomes. So why is there such a disparity in breast cancer awareness, diagnosis and survival among different communities in the UK?

This webinar for health professionals, in partnership with MyNutriWeb, looks at how to help people reduce their risk of breast cancer and raises awareness of the potential inequalities that exist in the UK. Please note that you will need to register to watch the video.
