MARY BRYSON LEADS CANCER'S MARGINS PROJECT
Green College Faculty Member examines the LGBT experience with breast and gynecological cancers

Professor Mary Bryson, Director of the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice, is leading the first nationwide project on how sexual and gender minorities experience cancer, highlighting previously overlooked communities’ perspectives on cancer care.

Funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, the three-year Cancer’s Margins project will look at how lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender cancer patients and members of their support networks in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Nova Scotia experience breast and gynecological cancers from screening and diagnosis to care, treatment and support networks.
