This paper reports the results of a project designed to examine the effectiveness of a Train the Trainer breast health education and screening program for African American, elderly and underserved women residing in the greater Nashville area. The project aimed to identify a cadre of women from the community willing to serve as leaders advocated and peer breast health educators. Data collected from the community leaders and the women from the local community during the course of the project suggest that the Train the Trainer model was well suited to provide education, support and breast cancer resource referral to women residing within this rural Tennessee community.
