Three CHI Saint Joseph Health Foundations in Kentucky were awarded more than $30,000 in grants from Susan G. Komen Kentucky to support women’s health initiatives. The funds will help expand the breast health resources provided by the foundations, including cancer screenings and treatments, financial assistance and other support for underserved women in Kentucky.

“We know screenings can detect cancer early and help save lives,” said Leslie Buddeke Smart, president, CHI Saint Joseph Health Foundations. “These grants from Susan G. Komen Kentucky allow us to extend the reach of our programs and touch even more lives of people who need these services.”

Saint Joseph Berea Foundation and Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation were both awarded funding for their Yes, Mamm! Programs, which provide mammography screenings and diagnostic services to low-income, uninsured or underinsured patients. Flaget Memorial Hospital Foundation received funding for Flaget Breast HOPE (Health Outreach, Prevention and Education), which helps educate women to be proactive about breast health, which is vital to early cancer detection.
