Informing, Modeling and Practicing Early Breast Cancer Detection

Many Hispanic women are neither taught, nor practice the breast self-exam. As early detection is critical to survival and Hispanic Immigrant women often lack health insurance or access to clinics, early breast cancer detection education is critical to diminishing historic late entry to care.

Using a Participatory Action Research approach, the RWHP has refined this early breast cancer detection intervention to meet the needs of the target community. the results have been the replication of CNS with promotora de salud programs, churches and health clinics. The foundation of the CNS breast health program is to:

  • raise awareness
  • modeling the steps of the breast self-exam
  • encourage regular detection screenings
  • offer navigation and access to resources
