Komen Grant to Fund Breast Screening for Uninsured

LifeBridge Health has been awarded a grant of nearly $85,000 from the Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure for its Freedom to Screen program for 2012-2013. Freedom to Screen (F2S) is one of only two new programs that were awarded the Komen grant this year in Maryland.

In collaboration with the Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute and the Herman & Walter Samuelson Breast Care Center, Freedom to Screen is a breast cancer education and screening program for the underserved and uninsured. F2S was developed this past year with support from braVo funds and an American Cancer Society health disparities grant.

The program provides breast health outreach and education to various communities, as well as financial assistance for screening mammograms and follow-up diagnostic services for uninsured and underinsured women who meet certain income guidelines.

You can read more about this award on the Baltimore Sun.

The grantees were honored during a breakfast ceremony hosted by the Komen Maryland Affiliate on April 3, 2012.

From L to R: Brooke Mullineaux, program coordinator, Freedom to Screen; Lisa Hamm, outreach coordinator, Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute; Michael Stein, director, LifeBridge Health cancer services; Amy Heinrich, VP board governance, Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

For more information about the Freedom to Screen program call 410-701-4705.
