They Count on You, You Can Count on Us Campaign

The Community Preventive Services Task Force has found multiple interventions to be effective at increasing breast and cervical cancer screening. The Care for Yourself Program implements many of these interventions within the structure of the program including small media, group education, one-on-one education, reducing structural barriers, reducing client out of pocket costs, and the use of community health workers (like you!). This toolkit was designed to assist you in promoting the Care for Yourself Program’s benefits as well as the unique assets that you as a program coordinator bring to your community.
