Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and its affiliates are governed by a Promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality of care for all and energizing science to find the cures. As such, Komen Acadiana has a part to play in achieving this Promise and that can be done by ensuring that our effectiveness in the community is optimized by strategically choosing areas of greatest need in the community of Acadiana.
The purpose of the community profile is to provide Komen Acadiana with a tool that can be used to take an inventory of current programs and determine the Affiliate's future course of action. The community profile includes an evaluation of the Affiliate's effectiveness in our service area. The community profile includes an overview of statistics; of both demographics and breast cancer. These statistics lead to suggested courses of action that will garner the most impact in our service area. The community profile will aid us in effectively meeting our challenges, will help us to control our change creatively, and will guide us towards a future in a world without breast cancer.
