Honing in on Triple Negative Breast Cancer: Improving Health Outcomes for Women of African Ancestry Using Precision Medicine 

Tuesday, Feb 25 | 5:30pm | HEB 105 Health Science Campus

Despite lower incidence and the steady improvement in screening, women of African ancestry are more likely to die of breast cancer than Caucasian women due to being at greater risk for triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). Unlike other breast cancers, TNBC is a much more aggressive disease—recurring and metastasizing more often than other kinds of breast cancer, without tumor-specific treatment options. Join us for a forum to learn more about TNBC and to explore the latest most up-to-date strategies in precision medicine for improving health outcomes for women of African Ancestry.

Participation Equals Representation - Why It's Time To Come Off The Political Sidelines

Wednesday, March 25 | Student union 2591
4:30 - 5:15 PM | Student VIP session
6PM |Panel Discussion with elected women

Politically, the more we engage, the more we achieve. Research shows a clear correlation between American women’s political giving and their representation in elected office. But the research also shows that women lag drastically behind men in political giving. In 2010, women made up just 26% of the political contributions to national candidates, PACs, and party committees, according to She Should Run and the Center for Responsive Politics. This panel discussion will help you think about where, how and WHY you MUST engage in the political process. Co-sponsored by The Matriots, a non-partisan political action committee dedicated to electing more women.
