Breast & Cervical Cancer Control in Michigan
While new cases and deaths associated with breast and cervical cancers have decreased in Michigan, these numbers remain higher in African American women compared to white women. Breast and cervical cancers have established and proven screening methods that can identify early stages of cancer for more effective treatment and increased survivorship. Through population- and clinical-based interventions along with increased education, we can work together to improve screening rates and provide better cancer outcomes for Michiganders.
Goal: 5% relative improvement in breast cancer screenings and pap tests
How Will We Do It?
