Breast Health for Specific Populations
In its efforts to provide breast health information for all women, Susan G. Komen commissioned the production of guidelines for culturally relevant educational materials designed for medically underserved audiences.
The purpose of these guidelines is to assist organizations in tailoring breast cancer education print materials to specific audiences. It is certainly not our intention to publish a comprehensive set of principles that would apply to every American woman, or even to all women in a particular racial, ethnic or cultural group. Moreover, it is our expectation that these guidelines will be used in conjunction with other publications available through public and private sources to produce culturally sensitive and appropriate materials and to highlight the importance of breast health to all women.
Specific Population Workbooks
