Our Community Need
Every three years Susan G. Komen Affiliates around the country conduct a comprehensive review of their service area – reviewing the breast health programs and services offered, as well as what gaps in the continuum of care are evident.
Results are reviewed by the national Susan G. Komen Community Profile team and together, the local Affiliate and the national office produce the Community Profile. The Profile is used as a road map – identifying a mission action plan, priority counties needing special attention and a structured plan to meet those needs over a three-year period. These findings and the subsequent Profile serve as key components of the Affiliate’s strategic plan.
Susan G. Komen North Central Alabama completed their Community Profile in December 2015 and it was officially released to the public in spring 2016.
Our hope is that this assessment will serve as a catalyst to policy change at the local and state level and will create a framework for comprehensive breast care in Alabama.
