The Sister’s organization specifically targets African American women in Los Angeles, Compton and Inglewood areas, who are socio – economically disadvantaged, single and head of the household.
The ages of the targeted women range from 40 to 80 years and the majority of them are either uninsured or underinsured. Based on a national survey, these are the women least likely to have regular scheduled mammograms.
