The Freedom to Screen program at Northwest Hospital provides community outreach, breast cancer education, and screening resources for lower-income, uninsured and under-insured women in Baltimore County and City. The goal of the program is to provide women with the resources they need to increase breast cancer awareness and prevention.
The program offers assistance in accessing health care for the following:
• Breast cancer screenings
• Clinical breast exams
• Follow-up diagnostic procedures
Additional assistance is offered to women who need help with patient navigation services. Patient navigators help women who have received a cancer diagnosis deal with their medical fears and develop a road to recovery.
The Freedom to Screen program is supported by a grant from the Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure™.
