The targeted populations for breast screening services are low-income women, ages 40 and over, who reside in Bowie, Cass, and Miller Counties. This includes women who are head of household with children, which have a disproportionately higher poverty rate than their counterparts (2010 US Census). Many of these women delay getting a mammogram citing cost and various other reasons that indirectly relate to cost, i.e. buy for the children first, and prioritize the children’s healthcare over their own, and job instability.
