  • To reach out to medically underserved populations, with particular emphasis on the African American, Hispanic/Latina, Older Women and Younger Women populations.
  • To recruit educators who are representative of the communities they will serve.
  • To provide referrals that are linguistically and culturally appropriate to the women who are being served.
