Arise, Inc. $36,333.00
ARISE’s Breast Health Awareness Outreach & Education project is designed to reach underserved and uninsured women, with particular attention to the African American, Latina, and Native American populations and women with disabilities, a population that is frequently a sub group of underserved populations since many women with disabilities face additional barriers to services. Key activities include increasing public awareness through culturally competent Outreach.
Carthage Area Hospital, Inc. $21,350.00
CAH will provide creative outreach programming to address the challenges facing underserved populations in areas of breast cancer awareness, the importance of early detection, obtaining appropriate screenings and accessing affordable services.

Crouse Hospital $48,700.00
To increase the number of women who get tested for breast cancer, Crouse will work to lessen the impact of the barriers of poverty and lack of education/access to healthcare through outreach to the community and Breast Health Center programs. The overarching goal of this project is to insure that all women, including 30 to 40 year old women, from the county of Onondaga receive mammography screening as well as a follow up appointment with a MD, PA or ANP if an abnormality or problem is detected. This program will provide education and outreach.
Oneida County Cancer Services Program $40,425.00
The Cancer Services Program of Oneida, Herkimer and Madison Counties (CSP), through the Oneida County Health Department will make screening mammograms available monthly to women of the Oneida Indian Nation, offer education/awareness and screening opportunities to women in the rural, western part of Oneida County, and provide screening and diagnostic breast health services to underserved women who are not otherwise eligible for CSP services. Additionally, navigation, supportive and side-effect management services will be provided to women who are diagnosed.
Onondaga County Health Department $50,000.00
This proposal has identified Onondaga County urban African American (AA) women; Onondaga and Oneida Nation women; and uninsured women as at-risk groups.

Oswego County Opportunities, Inc. $37,775.00
The purpose of OCO’s Breast Health and Cancer Services Partnership Program is to reduce the fear of mammography, address the lack of knowledge about the importance of breast cancer screening and increase the awareness of free screening programs available to the rural women and men in Oswego County with a focus on uninsured or underinsured, under or unemployed women. Services are designed to help patients navigate the continuum of care to insure that they are screened, assist those with positive screening findings and receive the appropriate follow-up diagnostic and treatment services.
