Abstract : The goal of this research is to develop a comprehensive program of interventions designed to increase early breast cancer detection among Filipino American women. Data for the San Francisco Bay Area show high rates of late stage breast cancer in this population. The first step toward increased early detection is identification and measurement of population characteristics related to screening practices and prospective efforts to improve screening rates.
