Two new breast cancer studies have joined the growing list of research initiatives documenting treatment disparities for various medical conditions. The studies, presented at the 2008 Breast Cancer Symposium in Washington, DC, provide important information on how access to care relates to race and geographic location.
The symposium was presented by the American Society of Clinical Oncology and other organizations.
