Please join us for a brand new series called, Community Outreach In The Field, where our field correspondents, comprised of LLS Staff, will be interviewing health advocates, patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals in the communities in which they serve. These episodes will give the listener the feel that they are right in the middle of the action.
In the first episode, Bryon Daily, the National Community Outreach Manager for LLS’ Myeloma Link Program, explored one of the newest outreach settings called Blood and Chess. This chess event took place in Atlanta, Georgia, at The Anguished Barber and is designed as an off shoot of the barbershop model, where advocates can spread blood cancer awareness in comfortable community settings and help to decrease healthcare disparities of underserved communities.
