WE ARE HERE FOR YOU
Learning to navigate this new crazy world of COVID is challenging for all of us. If you are a Survivor or know a Survivor who is in need of ANYTHING during these critical times please do not hesitate to reach out to WVBHI. If we do not have the resources that they need, we will do everything in our power to help find that resource. We have been calling and checking on Survivors who have been self- quarantining, as well as delivering groceries and other necessities.
DON'T PUT OFF YOUR MAMMOGRAM!
The WVBCCSP provides clinical breast examinations (CBEs), mammograms, and Pap tests for eligible women, as well as diagnostic testing for women whose screening outcome is abnormal. Since Program inception in 1991, the WVBCCSP has enrolled over 107,000 women and provided more than 209,000 Pap tests, 136,000 mammograms, and 198,000 breast exams.
While screening services are key to early detection, their existence alone is insufficient to achieve a reduction in the illness and death associated with these diseases. As required by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the WVBCCSP engages in the following activities in order to implement a comprehensive program:
Screening and Diagnostic Services
Education and Outreach
Partnership and Collaboration
Evaluation (Surveillance, Quality Assurance, and Technical Assistance)
