Sisters United in Health/Hermanas Unidas en la Salud

The heart of Sisters lies in our bilingual outreach coordinator and trained volunteers who provide women of color and minorities on Long Island with culturally-sensitive breast health information through workshops, health and wellness events, and one-on-one education.

We facilitate referrals for low-cost or free mammograms and/or clinical breast exams, and provide patient navigation to address barriers to care and ensure that individuals receive the services for which they were referred. Working closely with the social work team, our educators guide individuals through the breast cancer screening process and provide referrals.

Sisters United in Health focuses outreach efforts on newer and emerging immigrant and socially isolated populations. Sisters United in Health provides NO-COST:

  • Bilingual educational presentations and in-service workshops to community organizations, agencies, schools and places of worship;
  • Referrals to free/low-cost mammograms for individuals regardless of their insurance or immigration status;
  • Participation in health and wellness fairs and community programs;
  • Bilingual educational brochures and literature to community organizations and businesses.
