NEA Baptist Breast Health program focuses on low-income, uninsured women living in Craighead County and surrounding counties and communities of Northeast Arkansas in an effort to reduce breast cancer rates and increase survival rates among these women and promote awareness. The program has two components: free screening mammograms/advanced testing and nurse navigation services. The majority of the patients served will be residents of rural areas of Northeast Arkansas, and will also meet the criteria of either low-income, uninsured or underinsured.
