Triple Negative
Thursday, January 27, 2022

As part of a project that the CBCN is undertaking to better understand the unique experiences of people diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) and metastatic triple negative breast cancer (mTNBC), we will be holding virtual focus groups in January 2022. These focus groups will be 1.5 hours in length and will help inform CBCN’s programming for TNBC and mTNBC as well as a survey that will be widely distributed across Canada.

Please email  if you are interested in participating in one of these focus groups and sharing your unique experience.
