Sociedad Latina Program

Team Maureen has partnered with Sociedad Latina, Dana Farber’s Community Benefits, and Planned Parenthood to offer a comprehensive cancer prevention and sexual health curriculum to peer leaders in Mission Hill this summer. This programs aims to combat the high rates of cervical cancer in the Latina population in Boston. Twelve students selected by Sociedad Latina participated in the 8 week program that taught a full sexual health and cancer prevention curriculum, along with communication and presentation skills. These students will return to their schools and communities to lead peer education programming based on their new knowledge and skills.

To participate in this type of program, or for more information on how to offer a similar program based on best-practice for your specific population, contact us.
