Cancer Screenings

Komen Colorado Screening and Diagnostic Project
Funded by Komen Colorado, this project helps improve CHC patients’ health by increasing access to breast health services. Participating CHCs can cover costs for direct patient screening and diagnostic services for women who are not eligible for public or private insurance programs. Most women served have never been screened or have not been screened in the past two years. In addition to covering costs, CHCs provide necessary breast health education, targeting populations who have the lowest overall screening rates.
