Cervical & Breast Cancer Awareness | Print |

Goal:  To eliminate disparities in breast and cervical cancer among African American women.

Activities and workshops are designed to increase the rate of young women being educated, immunized and screened for the prevention of cervical cancer. Currently, presentations and workshops are available in the following areas:

    • Understanding the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine
    • The importance¬† and utilization of mammography screenings
    • Chronic Disease Self Management: A six week course designed to teach participants how to manage chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, etc.

Public awareness is provided via mass media, including radio and television, as well as community presentations throughout Fulton County, including schools and other venues. Listing of available community resources to assist and support African American women with breast and cervical cancer is also maintained by staff.

Atlanta Cancer Awareness Partnership (ACAP) Coalition was created out of need to combat cancer along with other community partnerships and support.
