About Us

The Healthy Breast Program was established in 2012 by a group of Bayanihan Clinic interns who realized the importance of breast health in our community. The Filipinx community, when in comparison to other Asian groups, are more likely to be affected by breast cancer because they are often diagnosed at later stages and are unaware of the necessity to perform self-examinations and be regularly screened. Our goal is to provide culturally sensitive outreach and education of healthy breast awareness and other areas of women’s health.
