In the Latina community, breast cancer screening rates are consistently low. With the support of our funders, the Campeonas project was created to address this concern by training Latinas to become health advocates within their community. Women who are 40 years of age or older attend a training to learn about the benefits of breast cancer screening and how to effectively communicate this information to their family and friends so they get screened. This culturally appropriate program allows Latinas to learn from a trusted source through materials designed by a team of professionals.
