A peer-education program related to breast and prostate cancer awareness has been launched by Hornell’s St. James Mercy Hospital.
The program is a statewide initiative to assist adults, regardless of insurance status, in understanding the importance of screenings for breast and prostate cancer. Through this effort, men and women are encouraged to discuss with their health-care providers their risk of cancer and whether to be screened. This is accomplished through peer-led, community-based education activities in the Steuben County area.
