Breast cancer is the most common cancer and the leading cause of death among Latinas in the United States. The Multi-level Intervention to Increase Participation in Mammography Screening study (¬°Fortaleza Latina!) is a partnership among research institutions, a Latino-serving community-based primary care clinic organization, and a cancer treatment center. The study will assess the efficacy of a clinic- and patient-level program to increase breast cancer screening among Latinas in Western Washington.
