Abstract: Growing health disparities for racial ethnic minorities in the United States have resulted in concentrated efforts aimed at narrowing the survival gap for many chronic diseases, including cancer. Stay Beautiful/Stay Alive (SBSA) is an educational intervention of the National Black Leadership Initiative on Cancer II: Network Project (NBLIC II) aimed at decreasing breast and cervical cancer mortality through awareness of cancer early detection. This paper describes a community-based participatory research approach, which engages the community as an active partner in research, and provides the results of an evaluation of this process. **********
