WISE Women: Women Inspiring, Servicing, and Educating

Fact: Low socioeconomic status women have a much higher mortality rate from breast cancer due to lack of diagnosis in the earlier stages. This can be attributed to lack of insurance, lack of knowledge, cultural and language barriers and fear.

Challenge: 177 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in Potter and Randall counties alone in 2013…30 will die…how do we reduce that number by even one woman?

Solution: The WISE Woman program, a collaborative effort of the Amarillo Area Breast Health Coalition, the American Housing Foundation, and Komen Race for the Cure/Amarillo provides on-site quality breast health education and services for both residents living in AHF residential communities and other women in the Amarillo Area.

**WISE Woman is funded by a Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure/Greater Amarillo Affiliate grant.
