Screening for breast and cervical cancer have proven very effective in saving lives. Tracy Colon explains how CHI Saint Joseph Health's Yes, Mamm! and Yes, Cerv! programs are helping women in our community receive these screenings.

That program helps provide mammography, which is breast cancer screening, and pap smears, which are cervical cancer screenings for women here in Kentucky.

Females 21 years or older, who are uninsured or underinsured, are eligible for this program.

We believe that health care should be accessible, and it should be available, to everyone. We do have areas all over the state that can provide mammography and these pap smear, cervical cancer screenings. 

All these procedures and screenings can be scheduled through our help line, which can be reached at 844.940.HOPE (4673).
