Breast Cancer Screening for Hispanic Women

chrisbFall 2013

The UAMS Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health is providing health information and screenings at the Mexican Consulate in Little Rock to decrease the number of breast cancer cases among Hispanic, Mexican-American and Mexican women in Arkansas.

The program, which also provides referrals for needed services, reaches more than 30,000 Consulate visitors annually through the Ventanilla de Salud (Health Window Program) that began in 2010.

Led by Paul Greene, Ph.D., professor of health behavior and health education in the UAMS College of Public Health, the program has received funds from the Consulate and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
