Cancer Prevention and Early Detection

The Women’s Wellness Connection (WWC) program provides free breast and cervical cancer screenings, diagnostic testing, and health navigation to women who are uninsured, underinsured, or low-income. For those who do not qualify for the program, LPCPH also accepts private insurance, which should cover preventative screenings at 100%, meaning: no cost for you. Please note we are unable to accepted Medicare.
Mammograms & Pap Tests
Free mammogram referrals and pap tests are available at La Plata County Public Health for those who qualify. See if you qualify (many people do).
We Can Help
We can support those who meet requirements with funding for services, transportation, and other gift card incentives as needed.

Cervical Cancer
Women ages 21-64 should get checked for cervical cancer every 3-5 years with a Pap test (or Pap smear) and/or an HPV test. These quick, routine tests are done in a doctor’s office or clinic.
