She Matters® is a community outreach program that educates women on the importance of breast cancer screenings. She Matters® is made up of Community Health Workers (CHWs) that go into the community they live in and encourage/help women to schedule a mammogram. The CHWs provide support by going to appointments and staying in the waiting room until the mammogram is completed. CHWs also make annual phone calls to remind patients of their upcoming appointment.
1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.
Breast Cancer is the MOST COMMON CANCER amongst American Women and the SECOND LEADING CAUSE of cancer death.
