These projects have been selected by our independent Grant Review Panel, comprised of community members and business leaders, as those that will have the greatest impact in serving under or uninsured women in our 13-county service area. Please note that Komen North Texas is not a direct service provider.
Asian Breast Health Outreach Project (ABHOP)
ABHOP provides understandable, culturally appropriate breast health education, and access to preventive breast care services for the at-risk individuals in our communities. With linguistic, knowledge, cultural, and/or financial barriers, it is hard for minority populations to access care. ABHOP’s knowledgeable staff speaks commonly spoken languages to bring breast health awareness, scheduling ability, registration assistance, on-site education, and systematic follow-up of exams until diagnosis is reached at the Women’s Imaging Center at Methodist Richardson Medical Center. The project will serve and empower all ethnic groups to enter and stay in the breast cancer continuum of care so that no one is left behind.
Counties served: Collin, Denton
