An Outlier Survivor’s Story: Confronting Systemic Barriers in Breast Cancer Care
RestartResume

This epidemiologist, breast cancer survivor, and patient advocate is exploring patient-driven solutions to increase participation in clinical trials.

  • Overview

    Ms. Marina Kaplan's inspiring life history as an "outlier survivor" as she put it for having achieved remission from triple-negative breast cancer over six years ago was helped by numerous cutting-edge clinical trials made accessible to her. But the experience as a study subject exposed her to systemic barriers confronting breast cancer patients everywhere, compelling her to reprise her epidemiology career expertise in conducting a study looking for novel solutions, as she shares with Dr. Matt Birnholz at the 2019 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.
