The Breast & Cervical Cancer Navigation Program is an outreach and educational program that promotes routine clinical breast exams, annual mammograms, and monthly self-breast exams. ACS navigators assist women in having access to free and low-cost clinical breast and cervical exams. ACS efforts are through our partnership with the Utah Department of Health and local healthcare providers to ensure access to free or low-cost resources.
Hispanic women experience many barriers that delay their access to treatment after being diagnosed with breast cancer. These barriers include inadequate insurance, poor access to health care, lack of transportation, language barriers, limited understanding regarding their diagnosis and treatment options, and lack of familiarity with the U.S health care system. ACS has a variety of resources to break down these barriers such as, free testing, transportation, and translation.
