University of Kansas Medical Center
The University of Kansas Cancer Center is one of only 67 NCI-designated cancer centers in the United States. They offer a comprehensive breast care program for women – from education and prevention, to diagnosis, treatment, and long-term survivorship. The Breast Cancer Prevention Center’s mission is to improve the accuracy of individual risk for breast cancer. A Breast Cancer Prevention Navigator, supported by funding from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, provides women with a variety of options for risk reduction, including information regarding breast health and screening guidelines, lifestyle change, and access to preventative clinical trials.
"Access to funding to support a Breast Cancer Prevention Navigator has demonstrated a significant increase in high risk women recruited to breast cancer prevention trials. This strategy for education, access, recruitment, and retention of high risk women will serve as a model for other programs across the country."
