Throughout the month of October 2023, STRIDE's dedicated team of providers took their commitment to the next level by using their voices on two major media platforms, Denver Channel 7 and Telemundo, to raise awareness about the significance of cancer screening and the disparities STRIDE patients often encounter.
October is well-known as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, dedicated to highlighting the importance of early detection through breast cancer screenings. However, providers at STRIDE recognize that the significance of cancer screening extends beyond breast cancer. That's why STRIDE provider's advocacy efforts went further to include all types of cancer screenings and the disparities that exist in the Denver Metro community.
Addressing Disparities: A Core Focus
STRIDE is acutely aware of the health disparities that exist in our community. Access to healthcare services, including cancer screenings, can be a significant challenge for many individuals. Last month, two providers took the opportunity to address these disparities during their appearances on Denver Channel 7 and Telemundo. They highlighted the importance of making screenings accessible and affordable to all, irrespective of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, or background.
