Federally funded through a grant to the Health Department, Ladies First pays for:
- annual mammograms
- clinical breast exams
- pelvic exams
- cervical Pap tests
- instruction in breast self-exam
- cardiovascular disease risk factor (cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes) screening.
Services are provided locally, by the woman’s own physician in most cases. Ladies First also pays for repeat mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies, and colposcopies.
Early and regular screening is key to reducing the death rate from cancer and heart disease. Women who are older or have limited income are at higher risk to develop cancer and heart disease, and less likely to be screened for cancer.
