Komen for the Cure Awards Grant to Crouse Hospital

05/07/12

Koment for the Cure - news sizeSusan G. Komen for the Cure Central New York has awarded Crouse Health Foundation a grant for $44,300. The funding will be used to help increase the number of women in the community who get tested for breast cancer though community outreach aimed to lesson the barriers of poverty, lack of education and access to healthcare services.

 

 

The program will provide education and outreach in three distinct tracks:

  • Building on outreach efforts started two years ago to Syracuse minority populations, including the refugee and chemically dependent populations;
  • Outreach to physicians with patients under 40 who have abnormal results or family history;
  • Outreach and programs aimed at Crouse’s 2,700 employees and their wives, sisters, mothers and daughters.

“The main goal of this project is to insure that all women in Onondaga County, including 30 to 40 year old women, receive mammography screening as well as a follow up appointment with a medical provider if an abnormality or problem is detected,” says Stephen Montgomery, MD, medical director of the Crouse Breast Health Center, the first nationally accredited breast imaging center of excellence in Syracuse.
