Congressional Briefing: SCREENS was created by Erica Williams

Posted 6 months 2 days ago #135
What, if any, screening programs does your healthcare organization currently have in place for vulnerable populations? 

On October 26th, there will be a Congressional briefing on The Screening for Communities to Receive Early and Equitable Needed Services for Cancer Act (SCREENS). The briefing will feature Congressman Joe Morelle (NY-25) and Lisa Richardson, MD, MPH, Director of CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. The SCREENS act would reauthorize the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) through 2028. For greater than 30 years, the NBCCEDP has effectively provided critical breast and cervical cancer screenings, follow-up, diagnosis and treatment to lower income, uninsured and underinsured women.
