Empowering Women Through Education and Access to Early Detection
Screenwise is helping reduce cancer burden and health inequities in Oregon through early detection, evidence-based care, risk factor screening, education, linkage to medical treatment, and surveillance. We provide access to no-cost mammograms through the Oregon ScreenWise Program, a statewide network of providers that offer a variety of breast cancer and cervical cancer screening services for eligible (age, 250% Federal Poverty Level income) uninsured and underinsured patients.
The NWFS ScreenWise Project also provides bilingual, bicultural care coordination throughout diagnosis and course of treatment.
During the period of July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022, ScreenWise went above and beyond in assisting individuals with their health needs. We were able to surpass our contract goal of serving 240 people by assisting 342 individuals in total. This achievement is a testament to our commitment to providing accessible and high-quality healthcare services to our community.
