Coalition Receives Komen for the Cure Foundation Award
Will increase access to breast cancer education and screening
April 22, 2010
The Healthy Community Coalition (HCC) has received funding from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation of Maine. The one-year $46,618 grant will be used for the breast cancer education and screening project, Reaching Rural Women Where They’re At.
“The project will employ evidence-based strategies with the goal of increasing the number of eligible women who receive some form of breast health education and breast cancer screenings,” said Heather Davis, HCC executive director. “Rural women will be provided with much-needed screening services and the education and resources to overcome the barriers preventing them from accessing breast cancer screening and treatment.”
HCC, with a mission to measurably improve the health and well-being of all people in Greater Franklin County and neighboring towns, using a coordinated approach of education, health promotion, and outreach is an affiliate of Franklin Community Health Network.
