There is a disparity in the breast cancer survival rate among African-American women compared with the rate among white women. The summit meeting addressed the breast cancer crisis among African-American women by bringing together scientists, breast cancer advocates, and policy makers. The goal of the meeting was to develop a research agenda. For breast cancer research to advance, priority areas must be identified. The current article suggests questions and issues which are addressed in this cancer monograph.
