The Alabama Hope Project is an initiative at the MCI that provides an evidence-based community lay health advisory program. Cancer survivors, caretakers, or individuals interested in advocating for cancer prevention “witness” by sharing their testimony of their or their family member’s cancer journey, from cancer detection through treatment, to engage and encourage women to participate in breast cancer and cervical cancer screenings. Once deemed safe for outreach, witness meetings will be held at local churches, community centers, and health fairs. Attendees will be provided with assistance with scheduling free or low-cost cancer screenings as needed.

Who would make the best USA Health Alabama HOPE Project volunteer?

  • One who is able to attend virtual, one-hour meetings monthly.
  • One who is a cancer survivor, caregiver to a cancer patient, or interested in advocacy.
  • One who is active within the community (church or community organization).
  • One who is compassionate about improving the health outcomes of your community members.
  • Once who understands the culture of the community.
