The Breast, Cervical and Colon Health Program works with many national, state, and local partners. Six regional organizations (Prime Contractors) contract with approximately 500 healthcare providers who provide services around the state. Our other partners provide funding, co-sponsor projects and events, and exchange information about how to improve screening rates for breast, cervical and colon cancer. Partner organizations also advocate for the program.
