Breast cancer is a major public health concern for all women, including women with disabilities. Women with disabilities are as likely to get breast cancer as women in the general population, yet, women with disabilities often face physical, cultural and attitudinal barriers when they seek breast health care services. To better understand the barriers women with disabilities face when they seek breast health services, AAHD has, in conjunction with Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), launched a confidential on-line survey to learn more about these barriers. AAHD encourages women with disabilities to take the quick on – line survey at http://bit.ly/WWDBrCa.

AAHD is a national non – profit organization dedicated to advancing health promotion and wellness initiatives, reducing health disparities, and advocating for full community inclusion and access for people with disabilities. Please visit the AAHD website at www.aahd.us to learn more about our work and visit  https://www.aahd.us/initiatives/susan-g-komen-grants to learn more about our work with the Susan G.
