Health Promotion and Chronic Disease education and navigation in areas that are underserved throughout
Allegheny County and counties within our network.
The goal of our community outreach program is to educate communities and more importantly, individuals about the risks of chronic disease and in particular cancer and how one can decreasing their risk. This includes, developing a healthy lifestyle, not smoking, seeing a doctor regularly, getting recommended screenings, etc.
Navigation involves the identification and when possible the removal of barriers that stand in an individual’s way of meeting their goals, such as lack of transportation so they cannot go to the doctor.
The goal is written within the original submission: to facilitate cancer screenings, assist clients in finding a medical home, etc
