Codman Square Health Center
The Breast Health Outreach and Education Program at Codman Square Health Center will seek to improve mammography rates in some of Boston's most ethnically diverse, low-income neighborhoods. The program’s goal is to provide total, continuous, culturally appropriate care beginning with outreach to women about risks and the importance of screening mammograms for early detection, to yearly screening reminders, to follow through with abnormal results, until the patient then returns to routine screening. The program plans to reach 3500 minority, low income women with information on the importance of routine breast cancer screening.
