  • A study on the Upstate Witness Project, which addresses breast cancer and cervical cancer among African-American women, found that training "witnesses" and lay health advisers to be an effective method to reach women. The program was tested in African-American churches in Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson and Pickens counties.
  • A study of Latina women in South Carolina found that very few understood the purpose of the Pap test. Most Latina women sought healthcare for prenatal services.
