UCLA Study: Preventive Care in Non-Traditional Settings Proves Effective for Underserved, Minority Populations
Preventive care outreach programs in unorthodox settings are successful in getting underserved and minority communities screened for health conditions, such as breast and colorectal cancers, according to a study conducted by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. The study examined 20 outreach programs, including four in California, that provided care in non-traditional settings, such as churches and outside of voting booths.
