The purpose of the Genetic Screening Program is to be able to assist
women with lower economic status, who have Medicaid or high
deductibles, to be able to afford genetic screening. The key activities
involved include: assessment to determine the need for genetic screening,
genetic counseling/risk assessment, actual screening done with kit and
mouth washing and follow-up appointment (s) for patient and physician.
Genetic screening is provided to women who otherwise would have no way
to determine if they are BRCA positive.
