Access Health Louisiana (AHL) received $22,500 in grant funding this month from the Susan G. Komen Foundation to offer free mammograms to uninsured patients. The awards were given out during the “Go Pink” luncheon held at the Audubon Tea Room on April 5th. Mammogram vouchers are available through AHL community health center locations in Orleans, St. Charles, Jefferson, St. Bernard, Plaquemines, St. Tammany and Washington parishes. This is the fifth year in a row AHL has received funding from the New Orleans Affiliate of the Komen Foundation to fund its Project TOUCH mammogram program. One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer according to the Komen Foundation. Getting a mammogram can significantly reduce your risk of dying from breast cancer. More than 3.1 million women have survived breast cancer thanks to early testing. If you or someone you know is age 40 or older and uninsured, contact AHL to schedule a time to receive your free mammogram voucher. Call 1-866-530-6111 for the clinic nearest you.
