Creating Sustainable Community Health

Project Description

The St. Mark Community Health Project is divided into three parts. The first consists of a basic diagnostic, whereby members of this parish are taught to assess systematically the needs of their respective neighborhoods. The second involves training a group of local lay community health workers who will acquire the skills necessary to educate their neighbors about breast health, conducting self-examinations, and seeking professional consultations. And the third relates to helping community members to summon and utilize the resources necessary to have better access to the health care system.
