The Latina Initiative: How Kaiser Permanente is Reducing Disparities in Breast Cancer Screening

Kaiser Permanente is collaborating with Susan G. Komen Oregon and Southwest Washington, and eight community partners to increase breast cancer screening among Latina women in Oregon. As part of The Latina Initiative “Poder y Vida” (Power to Live) project, Kaiser provides free mammograms to eligible Latinas, and donates the treatment for the women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. The program started in 2013, and so far more than 1,000 women have received free mammograms and six are being treated for breast cancer.
