Ohio women aged 40 and over with limited
income or insufficient health insurance could be eligible for free
breast and cervical cancer screening, thanks to UC's Breast and
Cervical Cancer Project (BCCP).
The project, intended to improve a
patient's chances of recovery through early diagnosis, is funded by the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Ohio
Department of Health BCCP Medicaid program. It is administered in
southwestern Ohio by UC's Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Department
of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
