Lifecare Alliance - Columbus
LifeCare Alliance's Columbus Cancer Clinic "Yes Mamm!" program serves women in central Ohio who are age 40 or older, or under the age of 40 with a family history of breast cancer. The program targets minority, low-income, and under/uninsured women, and stands apart from similar community programs in its ability to eliminate the unique and varied barriers to breast health education and services faced by at-risk women. There is a need in central Ohio for these services specifically, as the community experiences low rates of mammograms and CBEs among its most at-risk, such as African American and Latina women, and African American women are dying from breast cancer at a 33% higher rate than white women in central Ohio.
