Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition is taking action in the community by offering Women’s Health Screening Program. The Women’s Health Screening Program in partnership with the State of Delaware provides centralized patient navigation services for breast, cervical, and other health screenings to eligible residents throughout the State of Delaware. The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition’s commitment to this program will include:

•  Pioneering and growing partnerships with screening providers, employers, as well as non-traditional partners to expand accessibility to mammography sites and other health screening sites throughout the state.

•  Ensuring access to care by navigating patients through various cultural and economic barriers including income restrictions, lack of transportation, language translation, lack of primary care provider, or having little or no insurance.

•  Reaching diverse communities to deliver messages that address their unique concerns about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.

•  Providing health screenings, health fairs, patient education, and the understanding of chronic conditions, to diverse communities to help to reduce the fear of disease.

•  Increasing the percentage of uninsured and underinsured women receiving cancer screening services in Delaware, with a focus on providing services to those who are rarely or never screened, as well as to encourage them to receive ongoing care.

•  Providing patient navigators who will help guide and navigate residents throughout the process of scheduling and obtaining screenings. In addition, patient navigators will help with language translation, answering questions, and address concerns often associated with health screenings. 

•  A transition of patients who previously received services on the Women’s Mobile Health Screening Van to freestanding mammography and screening sites.

•  Promotion and delivery of important health and wellness education to residents across the state of Delaware.
