We are proud to announce our 2018-2019 Community Grants!
As we all know, reaching health equity in underserved communities is key to making a difference in our local fight against breast cancer deaths. To assist in these efforts we have distributed $350,000 in grants to provide critical breast health services to individuals in our 29 county service area.
