Breast cancer is manageable and preventable. The key is early detection. However, studies have shown that minority women in Miami-Dade are less likely to seek preventative breast health care.

The Mammography Art Initiative (MAI) was established at the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine at FIU in 2011 to address the need for better access to affordable breast health services and breast health education for underserved women in Miami. Through the fundraising efforts of the previous two years’ art shows, we have been able to raise over $50,000 in funds and services to sponsor mammograms and follow up care for hundreds of women all over Miami-Dade County.

The MAI has been inundated with support from local artist and the healthcare community. We are continually expanding our program and hope to close this health disparity gap in the near future.
