Breast Health Education Services

One of the core missions of the Mammograhy Art Initiative is education. We aim to improve health literacy and understanding of breast health and breast cancer in the greater Miami community.

We have a three-part strategy to attaining this goal:

      1. Identify those communities with particular need for education.
      2. Understand the social and cultural contexts of each community and their implications on residents’ access to and understanding of information.
      3. Utilize diverse tools and resources to effectively tailor education to individual community’s needs.

Medical students and faculty seek to provide multi-lingual, culturally-conscious, and interactive breast health education workshops. We volunteer at health fairs, women’s shelters, community meetings, churches and other religious centers, and any other venues whereby we can connect with individuals who are eager to improve their breast and women’s health literacy.
