Community Outreach

Especially important at the BCRC is the provision of field outreach education to those women not yet touched by the disease. It is clear that a priority for us is to help educate women in our community about breast health (Breast Self-Exam techniques) and screening, from our young women to our seniors, especially those who my have limited or no access to education or care. Women must know that if a lesion is mammographically detected during the early development stage, chance of survival and/or cure rate is raised to a dramatic 95% or more. This is a major improvement over today’s variable survival rates among different ethnic groups, ranging from 55% to 79% — because many of them are discovering breast cancer too late. Attention is given to these various ethnic groups in the field outreach program.

Field Health Outreach Program retains an English / Spanish-speaking health educator who works in the field to promote BCRC resources, breast health awareness, early cancer detection, and provides support to access mammogram screening programs.  The Field Outreach & Health Program is made possible through funding by Avon Foundation.
