See, Test and Treat events provide essential, diagnostic medical care to underserved populations across the country. These events address health disparities “by reducing barriers to care for medically underserved people through health care system partnerships,” according to the CAP Foundation.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, closing gaps in care is essential as many patients may have been unable to receive regular health screenings. These issues disproportionally impact at-risk communities.
This is the fifth year Indiana University National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health has received grant funding for the event. See, Test and Treat is hosted in partnership with the Gennesaret Free Clinic as well as Ascension St. Vincent, Indiana, PATH4YOU, IU Health, Step-Up, Inc., Damien Center, Breast Cancer Awareness Trust, DCL Pathology, Indiana Department of Health and Westminster Neighborhood Services.
