Georgia breast cancer plan aimed at uninsured

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 10, 2008
The Georgia Department of Community Health is taking steps to improve breast cancer services for the state's uninsured population through a $1.2 million initiative that will provide grants to organizations offering breast cancer health promotion, screening and treatment to indigent women. The grants will range from $25,000 to $50,000 for screening projects and up to $300,000 for treatment programs. Community groups applying for treatment grants must demonstrate "strong, comprehensive partnerships with various healthcare providers to provide breast cancer services to underserved populations."
