The Oregon ScreenWise Program works with a statewide network of providers that offer a variety of breast cancer, cervical cancer, and genetics services for uninsured and underinsured patients. Our mission is to reduce cancer burden by promoting early detection, evidence-based care, risk factor screening, education, linkage to medical treatment, and surveillance for the public.
For more information on program details and operations, see the ScreenWise Program Manual.
The ScreenWise Program, as part of the Adolescent, Genetics and Reproductive Health (AGRH) Section commits to working towards racial equity by addressing racism, acknowledging implicit bias, and shifting how we do what we do. We accept that our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) means a commitment to constant learning – we will make mistakes, but we are determined to learn from them and to improve.
