Ysabel Duran, Founder of Latinas Contra Cancer
National Latino Cancer Summit : Latinas Contra Cancer, San Francisco, July 2014
Latinas Contra Cancer is raising awareness about cancer in the Latino community, increasing access to quality care, working to decrease mortality and improving the quality of the health care experience. We do this by offering support services and resources for the Latino cancer patient and their family; collaborate with other small agencies to provide education and outreach services; partner with health care institutions to bridge the gap through culturally competent outreach and medical care.
