Needs analysis underway: Breast cancer in San Diego County

AA-people-ribbonSusan G. Komen San Diego is the expert on breast cancer. No other organization has the deep understanding of barriers to care, and no other organization raises funds to bridge those gaps making access available to all women regardless of where they live or how much money is in their pocket.  How does that work?

Every five years, we take an in-depth needs assessment of breast cancer in San Diego County carefully studying the answers to questions like:  who is being diagnosed and at what stage, where do they live, and what prevented them from accessing care for an earlier diagnosis?  The answers help us to know where the need is greatest and what programs have the most impact.

“We’re underway right now with the needs analysis,” said Lizzie Wittig, Director of Grants & Public Policy.  “Read more about our community profile here.”
