Reducing Breast Cancer Disparities

Komen Maryland believes that where you live should not determine whether you live – and that all women should have equal access to quality breast health care. We are committed to fixing the issue and working to bridge the gap in access to high-quality health care to reduce the rate, and, ultimately, end breast cancer disparities.

  • Achieving Health Equity and Building Trust in communities where the disparities are greatest by ensuring access to high-quality screening, genetic testing, treatment, and clinical trials.
  • Reducing Barriers to Quality Care through Patient Navigation by guiding women through the health care continuum: from outreach, education, risk reduction, detection, diagnosis, and treatment, through survivorship or end-of-life care.
  • Empowering the Community through Advocacy by providing resources to support providers, survivors, advocates, community leaders, researchers, insurers, and policymakers to sustain local health system change.

You can get involved by donating to Komen Maryland to support community programs that will ensure access to the same quality of services for all.
