Community Education and Outreach
Community Breast Health Education Programs
To accomplish our mission we have developed, adapted and implemented a variety of programs and resources to educate the community about breast health, breast cancer, risk factors and prevention, and early detection and screening. Our culturally competent programs are designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of audiences and can be customized to fit the time allowed, specific concerns, or the interests of the audience. Our presentations can involve video, lecture and hands-on experience. Staff and volunteers regularly provide information at community events and health and wellness fairs. DBCC’s website provides information about breast health and breast cancer. In addition, DBCC can also link women to screening services, along with resources to pay for those screenings.
