Support projects must provide a focus on education, increasing treatment compliance/ completion and/or improving healthy lifestyle habits.
Purpose: To explore new approaches to reduce breast cancer education barriers identified in Oregon and SW Washington. Education and outreach projects must lead to a documented breast cancer action (e.g., getting a screening mammogram; importance of follow-up after an abnormal mammogram).
Purpose: To support (e.g., logistics; registration fees; presenter fees, etc.) local scientific or educational conferences with presentations/sessions that have an emphasis on the interaction between advocate, public health, health care and scientific communities to address breast cancer disparities to achieve health equity.
