Abstract

Early detection of breast cancer leads to higher survival; yet, women who live in rural areas have lower screening rates and receive diagnosis at later stages. Effective screening approaches have been published in scientific journals but are not easily available to and understandable by community members. This article describes the development of an academic-community collaboration to implement evidence-based interventions to increase screening.
