Caring Connections

The primary goal of Caring Connections is to decrease the isolation and mortality in women with breast and cervical cancer, and to help women empower and advocate for themselves. The purpose of this proposal is to support a community assessment of the need, facilitation factors, and barriers to utilization of Caring Connection's Support Groups. In addition we propose to develop an implementation plan based on the assessment which will enhance the community's knowledge and utilization of Caring Connections's Support Groups.
