This position was created through a New York State (NYS) grant with the goal of increasing the number of women in NYS getting screened for breast cancer.  For most women over 40, the recommended breast cancer screening is a yearly mammogram.

"How did I feel after learning I had breast cancer? A feeling of loneliness,” says Maria Torres, a resident of Buffalo, New York and breast and cervical cancer survivor.
