Julie Rogers "Gift of Life" Program

Medically underserved women—including those who are uninsured or underinsured, low-income, minorities, and living in rural areas—face critical health disparities that result in higher rates of breast cancer incidence and mortality. Women in Southeast Texas disproportionately confront challenges and barriers to healthcare due to limited financial resources and access to conveniently located and affordable mammography and other screening services.
