Community Profile Priorities
*The following counties are expected to not meet HP 2020 Guidelines for either the late-stage target or death rate and, therefore, are priority areas; Boone, Rush and Shelby County.
Our priorities are to:
- Eliminate barriers that prohibit women from entering in the continuum of care and receiving treatment, such as time away from work, transportation and child care.
- Target education and outreach strategies toward behavior change to ensure that women among all populations actually receive mammograms and complete the continuum of care.
- Increase access to diagnostic and treatment services for the working poor and underinsured/uninsured, particularly for those living at or just above 200 percent of the federal poverty level (defined as $47,100 for a family of four).
- Increase access to care for Hispanic women in Clinton County.
- Reduce late stage diagnosis and increase access to care for African American women in Marion County, focusing on behavior changes and the completion of the breast continuum of care.
