The Women’s Health Program

Thanks to the strong collaboration with Susan G. Komen Italia, an Association that promotes the fight against breast cancer worldwide and in Italy, Casa Scalabrini 634 launched the Women’s Health Program. The program aims at promoting women’s health by raising awareness on the importance of healthy nutrition and early detection in relation to breast cancer and to some major women’s health issues. The program occurred at Casa Scalabrini 634 with three different training sessions and one day of free mammograms and ultrasounds for 60 women among refugees, migrants and the local community. The program has been very successful not only in promoting the importance of health but also in contributing to a further integration activity in collaboration with the local institution and community.
