Komen Awards $48,000 Grant to Crouse Hospital

05/06/14

Komen newsCrouse Hospital has been awarded a $48,000 grant from Susan G. Komen for the Cure Central New York to continue efforts to raise awareness regarding free and reduced-cost breast health services for women in the area.

 

The Komen grant enables Crouse to build upon ongoing outreach efforts dedicated to providing underserved women the opportunity to take advantage of free screenings and other breast health services. This includes three areas of focus:

 

1.    Targeted outreach projects to specific minority groups in the Syracuse area, including refugee populations and chemically dependent populations;

2.    Establishing connections with physicians, OB-GYNs and any practitioners who have patients under the age of 40 with a family history of breast cancer or abnormal results from exams;

3.    Outreach and educational programs to support those who are uninsured.

 

The grant also helps Crouse provide mammograms and other tests for women who otherwise could not receive them because they have insufficient insurance or do not qualify for Onondaga County’s Cancer Services Program. Crouse continues to work on educating the community about the importance of early detection of breast cancer and access to testing services available to women through the Crouse Breast Health Center.
