“Reaching Those in Need” is the focus of Scott Memorial Hospital’s grant from the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust. Scott Memorial serves many patients who are financially compromised and undereducated since Scott County is one of the poorest counties in Indiana. This grant allows us to provide this important cancer screening to many women who otherwise would not be able to receive it. As a past recipient of this grant, the grant staff has established that being involved and present in the community is one of the keys to being successful in dissolving the barriers that stand in our way. Our desire to educate all women on the importance of breast health is still thriving. Proper self-breast exam is a key component to breast health as are health lifestyle choices. Scott Memorial Hospital is dedicated to fighting the war against breast cancer.
