LCS has screened more than 1,000 Latina women for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.

LCS partnered with VCU Massey’s Office of Health Equity and Disparities Research and Policy and Georgetown University to assist in the screening of Latino women at high risk of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. The Contigo project tests the efficacy of a culturally targeted narrative video in enhancing genetic counseling and testing (GCT) uptake and psychosocial outcomes in at-risk Latina women. Eligible women can access GCT which informs treatment and risk management. Since May 2022, LCS has screened more than 1000 women in RVA and referred to the Georgetown research team 159 potential eligible Latina women. Other community-based organizations from Northern Virginia are part of the Contigo project. This is a 5-year partnership until 2025 and a detailed description of the project was published in the Journal of Genetic Counseling.
