Our “Healthy Spirits, Healthy Bodies” (HSHB) program is funded by a grant from Komen Columbus for the Cure.
Through this program, the Diversity Enhancement Program aims to reduce breast cancer health disparities among African-American females in Franklin County by offering screenings, education, and screening referrals in an environment familiar and comfortable to these women: their place of worship.
In an effort to reduce the health disparity in breast cancer, the HSHB program aims to
- provide on-site mobile mammography screening services at local community churches
- use culturally tailored information to educate African-American women about breast cancer prevention and early detection, as well as
- provide information on local resources where free or low-cost mammograms and support services can be obtained.
If you would like information about hosting the HSHB program at your church, call the Diversity Enhancement Program at (614) 293-7020
