COMMUNITY OUTREACH

The program goal of motivating rarely or never screened women to enter and seamlessly move through the continuum of care will require broad cross-sector coordination. Komen’s model of community organizing supports building partnerships and leveraging strategic relationships to address barriers by pooling resources, sharing best practices, reducing redundancies in services, and uniting partners around the project’s goals and objectives. Convening of key stakeholders, including patient advocates, medical providers and community-based organizations, will create a permanent infrastructure for collaboration and sustainability.
