MIYOlogoMake It Your Own (MIYO), a free web-based publishing system, has launched a breast cancer screening topic area that gives community partners the tools to create customized, culturally-appropriate health materials targeted to their audiences without having to develop them from scratch. Since 2008, organizations have been using MIYO to create health information for the specific populations they serve. MIYO assures high quality by standardizing the look and feel of materials and using evidence-based strategies recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
