Our Community Need
Komen Tulsa conducts a needs assessment to guide our priorities and work more effectively within the community. The needs assessment includes an overview of demographic and breast cancer statistics that highlight target areas, groups or issues. Komen Tulsa then uses the the needs assessment to make informed decisions on how the Affiliate can use its resources to make the greatest impact on breast cancer in the service area by awarding local grants for education, screening and diagnostic programs.
Every four years, a community needs assessment is revised to reflect changes in the community, allowing the Affiliate to identify any gaps in the health system and to work toward filling them. Analysis of Komen Tulsa’s service area in the community needs assessment includes the voices of those living in target areas. The completed product is an assessment of the state of breast health in our community and a plan of action for the Affiliate to work towards over the following four years.
