Body

The Peoria Memorial Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation has awarded the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center (LCHD/CHC) $7,300 in grant funding. The grant will fund screening mammograms for uninsured Lake County women. Based on current prices, LCHD/CHC is projecting that at least 50 women will receive a screening mammogram using Komen funds. Komen funding is dedicated for women between the ages of 40 and 49. Screening services will be coordinated and provided by staff working in the Lake County Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer program (IBCCP).

 

LCHD/CHC has received financial support from the Susan G. Komen foundation since 2005. Since 2014, 100% of funds have been dedicated to screening mammograms. The grant period for the award is January 1, 2019-December 31, 2019.
