A top investment advisory firm in Indianapolis, Indiana, Sheaff Brock Investment Advisors, LLC, takes a unique approach to portfolio development that mitigates risk while embracing volatility to achieve the highest returns possible. Committed to giving back to the community, Sheaff Brock supports Susan G. Komen, an organization that fuels breast cancer research and pushes for better detection and treatment strategies.

Recently, Susan G. Komen joined with Merck & Co., Inc., to complete a comprehensive report on breast cancer in Tanzania. The report includes specific recommendations for standardizing breast cancer treatments in the country and improving overall care by investing in provider training. Breast cancer has had a growing impact on Tanzania, making this intervention very timely.

The vast majority of Tanzanian women with breast cancer are not diagnosed until late, which results in a very low survival rate. The Tanzania Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children asked Susan G. Komen to conduct the study and identify important gaps that need to be addressed to improve the country’s breast cancer care. This initiative is an extension of the existing Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon partnership addressing breast cancer in sub-Saharan Africa.
