Mammograms After Sunday Service (MASS) is an existing project by The Beautiful Gate Cancer Support & Resource Center (TBG). The MASS project provides breast health education seminars with onsite mammograms and/or referrals to eligible women after Sunday service at predominantly African American ministries.
Minority and underserved women of color face cultural and non-cultural barriers that hinder their access to traditional health care. Although no one will be excluded, our targeted group is African Americans because they have the highest mortality rate of any ethnic group for most major cancers.
For this reason, by hosting MASS workshops after religious/spiritual services, a day set aside and endorsed by the “Man of GOD” at each Church, which is a pillar in the African American communities, we expect to reap a greater number of attendees. Each attendee who accepts and qualifies for services will be provided care coordination and follow-ups.
