Dora E. Arias, Executive Director
In May 2003, Dora was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 39. After working at JP Morgan for over 18 years, she left the company in 2005 and joined the Patient-Centered Teaching program developed by Dr. Stuart Green from Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ. As a patient educator, she had the opportunity to share her personal experience with breast cancer with healthcare providers from various hospitals as well as women in the community. After managing the program for two years, she had an overwhelming desire to help women facing a breast cancer diagnosis, especially those women who were medically underserved. In July 2007, she started spending time in local hospitals helping medically underserved women with breast health concerns or a breast cancer diagnosis through the process of accessing healthcare services. This work led to the development of the Community Health Worker model, and the establishment of Curémonos, as a non-profit organization in 2009. Dora is currently a member of the Advisory Board, Patient Satisfaction Committee and Community Task Force Committee at Overlook Hospital.
