In an effort to promote breast cancer awareness, prevention and early detection to the refugee and immigrant community living in Utah, the Comunidades Unidas/Communities United (CU) has a program where they train Multicultural Breast Cancer trainers and educators to help in educational workshops. All the workshops offered are free to the community and they are designed to provide information about breast self-exam, early diagnosis of breast cancer and breast health issues and risks. These workshops would be of interest to anyone concerned about their breast health and can be offered through groups, organizations or business programs via group seminars, Lunch and Learns, health and safety training or conferences and conventions. Workshops are presented in a relaxed format using breast models for demonstration purposes
The mission of Comunidades Unidas is to eliminate ethnic disparities by promoting grassroots outreach, education and capacity building, as well as advocating for long term policy change.
CU is looking for people who would volunteer to be trained. This will help improve the immigrants and refugees’ health.
