Women’s Health Program
The philosophy of this program is that all American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) women should be offered culturally sensitive teaching about breast and cervical care, and accessible and appropriate services. This program will focus on high-risk, low income AI/AN women between the ages of 18-64, to address lack of knowledge of caring for self and other obstacles to preventive care. With adequate teaching and services the morbidity and mortality of breast and cervical cancer for AI/AN women will decrease.
