Cervical and Breast Cancer [September 25, 2019] — Funded by a grant from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Foundation, pathologist Crystal Moore, MD, PhD, FCAP, Clinical Pathologist, leads clinical volunteers to deliver a See, Test and Treat cancer screening program Saturday, October 12th, at the Hampton Roads Community Health Center (HRCHC) headquarters, 664 Lincoln Street, Portsmouth, VA. The program serves underserved area women and represents a partnership between HRCHC, Susan G. Komen, Sentara and the College of American Pathologists. The cervical and breast cancer screening services provided by the See, Test and Treat Program serve to eliminate the incidence of cervical and breast cancer among minority and underserved women,” said Dr. Crystal Moore, Pathologist Lead for HRCHC’s See, Test and Treat program. “Through this initiative, we see a reduction in the incidence of both cervical and breast cancer and provide women with education concerning their unique risks. As the sole See, Test and Treat program hosted in the Commonwealth of Virginia this year, it is vital to the positive healthcare outcomes for Hampton Roads’ underserved women.” See, Test and Treat will provide women with a free Pap test with same-day results and screening mammogram with same-day or prompt results. Sentara Healthcare will provide on-site mammograms, via its mobile unit, and will have staff on site to provide interactive educational information. In addition, HRCHC will provide children’s activities. More than 12,000 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer this year, however, with screening tests, such as the Pap test and HPV test, cervical cancer is now one of the most preventable cancers.
