Our Community Need
It is important to Komen Utah that we address the most pressing breast cancer needs in our own community. For that reason, every four years, the affiliate conducts a needs assessment to guide our funding priorities. The needs assessment, or Community Profile, includes an overview of demographic and breast cancer statistics that highlight target areas, groups or issues. Komen Utah then uses the needs assessment to make informed decisions on how the Affiliate can make the greatest impact on breast cancer through the awarding of local grants for education, screening and treatment programs. The completed project is an assessment of the state of breast health in our community and a plan of action to improve it.
