Benedictine foundation gets $15,000 grant for breast cancer program

The Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation awarded a grant in the amount of $15,000 to the Benedictine Health Foundation to support a new initiative, the Breast Education and Breast Outreach Program (BEBOP), which was developed by the staff of the Fern Feldman Anolick Center for Breast Health and the Oncology Support Program at Benedictine Hospital, a member of HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley.

This new initiative addresses an urgent community need and is designed to close the gap for a significant segment of our region’s population through outreach and education by promoting screening and diagnosis among minority and underserved women.

“Lower-income, uninsured and under-insured women have a great advocate in BEBOP,” said MaryRose Warcholak, Executive Director of the Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation. “We’re pleased to support this critical health initiative in our community.” (more…)
