This $1.3 million project featured a church-based intervention to promote changes in the areas of diet and women’s cancer prevention (including breast and cervical cancers). Peer health workers within each of 20 churches were trained to provide educational activities and to utilize innovative methods to disseminate health related information throughout the church membership.
