Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women in New Hampshire and is the second leading cause of female cancer deaths in the state.*  Since breast cancer can be detected early, it is essential for women to talk with their providers about appropriate screening.

NH CCC works collaboratively with partners to share resources and implement strategies that address breast and other cancers in New Hampshire. State health data revealed that adults who work in restaurants and the food service industry are less likely to get preventive cancer screening tests such as a mammogram or Pap test.

Our Equity Task Force partners created and mailed a poster (available in English and Spanish), about breast and cervical cancer screenings, to 1,500 food service establishments in NH, in an effort to increase awareness of FREE services available to employees. The NH Breast and Cervical Cancer Program provides free screening to eligible women.
