    Article - En anglais


    The use of local data on cancer incidence and mortality and on risk-related behaviors to help communities set priorities and guide program planning is an important facet of the National Cancer Institute's Program, « Data-Based Intervention Research for Public Health Agencies. » As a participant in this program, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has developed a « breast cancer profile » for a seven-county, predominantly rural region of northwestern Pennsylvania.

    Community hospitals in the area are collaborating with the health department to develop interventions to enhance screening mammography.
