Raphael Health Center is proud to announce that we are participating in the NFL’s Crucial Catch initiative.
The National Football League’s A Crucial Catch Initiative has provided another year of funding to support increased access to breast cancer education and screening resources in underserved communities through the American Cancer Society.
As part of its Community Health Advocacy implementing Nationwide Grants for Empowerment and Equity (CHANGE) initiative, the American Cancer Society has awarded a $50,000 grant to Raphael Health Center to continue efforts to provide education, outreach and navigation, and help individual’s access breast cancer screenings in Indianapolis.
The grant also will be used to support “A Crucial Catch Day,” a community health event on Tuesday, October 25th, in Indianapolis at Raphael Health Center, 401 East 34th Street from 10 am to noon. Patients will be assisted in scheduling screening appointments and provided with additional education about breast cancer and just how crucial early screening is.
