Prairie Ridge Health and the UW Carbone Cancer Center are seeking your help!  Together we are asking the women of our community to share your views about mammograms to help us understand what is preventing rural women from having mammograms.  By completing this 8-minute survey, you will help us save lives.

One in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, with 90% of them having no family history.  Early detection is our best fight against breast cancer, yet women in rural communities have lagged behind the state and national average when it comes to getting screened.  For example, in Columbia County, only 39% of eligible women receive their yearly recommended mammogram compared to the state average of 50%.  Help us learn how to educate the community, promote Breast Health and protect the lives of your sister, daughter, mother, grandmother and friends.
