NONPROFIT MEMBER: Chrysalis Initiative
The Chrysalis Initiative exists to disrupt outcome disparities within breast cancer, so every patient receives the care they deserve. By providing patients with mentoring and resource navigation and equipping Black women (and other disparate groups) with the opportunity and education to assess their breast cancer risk, we are closing the gap one story at a time.
In addition to supporting patients with breast cancer, The Chrysalis Cancer Curriculum Provider Training challenges institutional realities with evidence-based strategies to guide providers as they reshape their paradigms and improve their practices to eradicate treatment disparities.
