The ProHealth Care Foundation received $86,214 from Susan G. Komen® Southeast Wisconsin on March 29, 2016, bringing the total amount of Komen funding granted to the foundation for breast health screenings and education to $441,654 since 2010. This year’s grant will ensure continuing community access to breast health education, breast cancer screening and follow-up services as needed.
“We anticipate that ProHealth Care will provide about 275 mammograms to people in our community through this generous grant,” said Joan Ullrich, manager of ProHealth Care’s palliative care program. “We will also share breast health education with about 1,200 women and men through outreach to individuals and small groups with the funding.”
The ProHealth Care program helps individuals who are uninsured or underinsured and in need of breast health services. A ProHealth Care nurse and bilingual health promoters work together to provide breast health education, facilitate access to mammograms, and provide case management for women who need care.
