Cultivando la Salud
NCFH is proud to offer one of our premiere health education programs, Cultivando la Salud. Cultivando la Salud is an evidence-based program that has been proven effective in increasing mammography, clinical breast exam, and Pap test screening rates among farmworker women nationwide. This breast cancer education program was developed specifically for farmworker women 50 years and older and centers on the lay health worker model, but Cultivando la Salud has also been utilized with other Hispanic communities nationwide and with women 40 years of age and older . Its overall goal is to reach farmworker women (and other Hispanic women) with culturally appropriate breast and cervical cancer screening messages and encourage them to get screened.
