Meharry & TN Dept. of Health Partner for Free Cancer Screening
The Center for Women’s Health Research (CWHR), Meharry Medical Group’s (MMG) Center for Women’s Health Care at Meharry Medical College, and the Tennessee Department of Health have partnered to provide the women of Middle Tennessee breast and cervical cancer screening services at no cost! The health disparities in the African American community are very much disproportionate when it comes to breast and cervical cancers. Did you know that breast cancer is the most common cancer among Black women and that Black women are more likely to die from breast cancer than white women? When it comes to cervical cancer 2,000 Black women are diagnosed each year with more than 40% of them dying from the disease. See the qualifications below to help save a life.
