Hempstead Town Councilwoman Dorothy L. Goosby will be the host at a breast cancer forum Saturday to discuss the disease’s impact on black women and how the disease could be eradicated.
The forum will be held from noon to 3 p.m. at the African American Museum, on 110 N. Franklin St. in Hempstead Village.
The event is also presented by Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., Iota Theta Zeta Chapter and Nassau County Interdenominational Ministers’ Wives and Ministers’ Widows Association.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among black women.
It is also the second-leading cause of cancer death among black women, exceeded only by lung cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.
