New resources developed by the Breast Cancer Task Force

As part of the South Dakota Cancer Coalition, the Breast Cancer Task Force convened partners and individuals from across the state to determine how to make measurable impact within the South Dakota Cancer Plan’s priority to increase risk-appropriate screening for breast cancer. With changing guidelines and differing opinions, the group knew there was confusion about when a woman should get screened for breast cancer. To address the situation, the task force created a targeted campaign to remind providers to have the conversation about risk-appropriate guidelines in order to increase the number of women who get screened.
