The Puget Sound Affiliate of Susan G. Komen recently awarded ICHS with a grant of over $50,000 to help pay for community outreach, prevention and education on breast health.
“This funding has been instrumental in helping ICHS reach out to low income and limited English Proficient Asian and Pacific Islander communities. Our staff help women overcome barriers for getting regular screenings for breast cancer,” said Michael McKee, ICHS Director of Health Services and Community Partnerships. “Thanks to partners like Komen Puget Sound, ICHS is able to address the significant health disparities related to the diagnosis, treatment, and survival.”
ICHS joined fellow grantees and Komen Puget Sound volunteers at a Community Impact celebration this past May. You can check out the photos on the Komen Puget Sound’s Flickr photostream:
