Pine Hill Health Center | Ramah Chapter, Navajo Nation

Abstract:

In the Ramah Chapter of the Navajo Nation — as in many parts of Indian Country — late detection of breast cancer leads to disproportionally high rates of breast cancer mortality. Ramah Navajo’s Pine Hill Health Center devised a creative response: it launched a series of “Mammo Days,” educational and social outings designed to encourage Navajo women to get regular breast cancer exams. Highly popular, Mammo Days meet a critical need in a culturally sensitive and medically effective way.
