More than 110,000 minority and medically underserved women in Northeast Ohio and across the nation now have new health resources through a landmark program that trains volunteers to provide breast cancer education and health care support in local communities. The Susan G. Komen Community Health Advisor program kicked off April 12 in Cleveland with a Komen Regional Breast Health Summit of influential health and community leaders. Sisters of Charity Health System Chief Medical Officer Giesele Greene, MD, was one of four featured panelists at the summit. The summit was followed by the initiative's first training session for 50 community volunteers. The training equips the volunteers with the skills to go out into Greater Cleveland to provide breast cancer education and assistance with scheduling mammograms and accessing other health care services.
The summit convened 150 key stakeholders committed to addressing the breast cancer burden in Northeast Ohio. The summit provided an opportunity for local hospitals, clinics, community-based organizations and civic leaders to showcase the breast health services they provide and to discuss how to ensure that uninsured, underinsured and underserved women get access to much needed services. The summit helped demonstrate the importance of collaboration between the community and the health system to reach those least likely to access breast health services in Northeast Ohio, and ultimately help reduce mortality rates from breast cancer. Funded by a $1 million grant from KeyBank Foundation, the Community Health Advisor program will expand to 17 additional KeyBank communities over the next two years.
