Arlington Free Clinic Inc.
AFC's Women's Health Program focuses on linking low-income, uninsured residents of our community with: (1) culturally appropriate breast health education; (2) breast cancer screening; (3) referrals for pro bono procedures, surgery, and cancer treatment; and (4) comprehensive, continuous follow-up care. We educate hundreds of low-income people about breast health care through our Breast Health Education Outreach Initiative. Our program provides annual screening for women ≥ age 40 and conducts regular breast health education sessions in the neighborhoods where many of our low-income community members live. Our program provides all those with breast abnormalities timely access to comprehensive follow-up care.
The mission of Nueva Vida is to inform, support and empower Latino families whose lives are affected by cancer, and to advocate for and facilitate the timely access to state of the art cancer care, including screening, diagnosis, treatment and high-quality care.
Founded in 1996 by a group of Latina breast cancer survivors and healthcare professionals, Nueva Vida provides a continuum of culturally sensitive cancer support services for Latina families in the Washington DC, Baltimore and Richmond metropolitan areas. Nueva Vida prides itself on being the only independent cancer care organization for Latino families in the Mid-Atlantic region and one of the few in the nation.
Every year, the organization serves over 3,500 individuals and their families, and reaches countless more as a resource to local and national healthcare partners seeking to improve their care for Latina families.
