Grants and Contracts Details


The Kentucky Cancer Program proposes implementation of Pink Ribbon Day Mammography Awareness events targeting medically underserved women who are low income, are uninsured or receive Medicaid, and are non-compliant with mammography screening. These women will be recruited from Northern Kentucky counties (Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Gallatin, Grant, Owen and Bracken), which have the lowest Medicaid mammography screening rates in Kentucky (Kentucky Women’s Breast Cancer Screening Program 2014-2016). The goal is to increase breast cancer screening by creating community clinical linkages between organizations who work directly with the target population and mammography screening services. These events will combine breast cancer education and awareness using tailored materials created by the FDA Office of Women’s Health with referral and access to mammography screening using a mobile mammogram van or clinic services.
