The Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Project (BCCP)

BCCP was started to decrease breast and cervical cancer deaths by providing free mammograms, pelvic exams, and Pap tests to women in the community who need it most. Currently they have local providers in 16 counties.

BCCP can help all women navigate screening. BCCP Patient Navigation program helps guide women through the healthcare system, find providers and community resources. Additionally, BCCP can answer any questions about scheduling, appointments, using insurance and more.

Do you know a woman who needs screening but cannot afford it? Connect her to BCCP at (866) 838-8973.

Area Agency on Aging: Healthy U Classes Coming in April and May

The Area Agency on Aging offers evidence-based workshops called Healthy U that help people throughout a nine-county region learn strategies to manage their chronic conditions and feel healthier. Each interactive session lasts about two hours.  It is a big time commitment, but when has anyone made lasting change with little effort? It is the weekly sessions and support of those with similar challenges that help Healthy U participants to make and meet their personal health goals.

Here are the three different community-based workshops available:

  • Health U Diabetes Self-Management
  • Healthy U Chronic Disease Self-Management
  • Healthy U Chronic Pain Self-Management

Do you or someone you know need a class to assist in managing a chronic condition? Check out their website for all available classes, dates and locations.
