The Collaborative Work Group (CWG) is a new, two-phase project from the Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation, YWCA, Greater Lakes Inter-Tribal Counsel, and the Medical College of Wisconsin. The CWG aims to learn from healthcare providers, researchers, community members, and others about breast and lung cancer disparities, and work together to create community change.
The CWG is currently recruiting participants from Milwaukee, Walworth, and Racine Counties, including community members, breast and lung cancer survivors, caregivers, health care providers, community-based organizations, academics, and researchers. Involvement includes attending regular meetings, examining data, and designing meaningful community solutions. Members of the CWGs will be compensated.
