Funding Saved, Program Transformed: 

Grew cancer program targeting rural and people of color (African American, Asian, Hispanic) by 23% using a cross-functional approach that addressed point of service (front desk) turnover issues, provider training, public education that Early Detection Works (fear of cancer) & created a sense of urgency. Program operated at max capacity for years even after the campaign ended.
