This employment opportunity is with Health Services, which is part of the Department of Human Services (DHS). This position is represented by a union.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The person in this position will provide direction and monitoring of the public education and community partnership components of the Oregon Breast and Cervical Cancer (BCC) and Komen Programs. The focus of this work is to assure that the needs of priority populations are served through effective education, outreach and recruitment activities to promote early detection of breast and cervical cancer through the programs. Priority populations, as defined by the funding organizations are women ages 50 - 64, women of color, women with disabilities, lesbians, women in rural areas, women with low incomes, and men with breast symptoms.
I understand that we should be focusing medical attention on high risk groups, that part makes sense, but this list of priority populations doesn't. Are lesbians more likely to get breast cancer? Are poor women more likely to get breast cancer? Are rural areas causing cancer these days?
