Community Outreach Programs
The Breast Center of Excellence strives to empower the community it serves to make
healthy choices. Nationwide, the rate of primary physician’s recommendation for screening
mammograms in eligible women is less than 30%. Our center provides training programs
and educational events via relationships with community enthusiasts to increase “Knowledge”, and improve “Attitudes” and “Practices” regarding breast health – KAP approach. The center generates prospective
data to compute the success and reproducibility of these programs with a broader goal
to implement these programs nationwide through organizations such as Komen Foundation.
The Center is also a BCCS provider for the un-insured women in the Panhandle area.
The current director of the program is also the chair of education committee of the
Susan G Komen, Amarillo Affiliate.
