Project Name: Breast Project
Grant Amount: $5,000
Organization: Genesis PrimeCare
Project Director: Karen Stephens
Address: 1400 College Dr. Suite 204

The overall goals of the project is to ensure 150 women receive a Clinical Breast Examination conducted by Genesis PrimeCare providers and continue to a full screening mammogram provided by our partner, Christus St. Michael or another accredited mammography entity. This will be accomplished by going into the rural communities of Cass and Miller and partnering with local groups to conduct breast health presentations to educate women of available resources. The presentations will provide key information on the “how” and “where” to obtain a CBE and Mammogram. This information is key to raise awareness of breast health, and instructions on accessing breast health services.
