Screening Programs

Cancer Screening and Education

The Northwest Georgia Regional Cancer Coalition partners with healthcare agencies and community organizations to provide low cost or no cost cancer prevention screenings for the uninsured, under-insured, and under served patients across Northwest Georgia.  Working with the public health departments, our healthcare partners, and federally qualified health care centers we identify and navigate patients through recommended screenings to increase early detection and reduce cancer mortality. The coalition also provides education programs to increase awareness and knowledge about cancer screening guidelines and recommendations, and how to access needed care and resources in our area.
