Prince William Health District
BEAT Cancer Breast Education Awareness & Treatment
BEAT_CA will focus on breast cancer mortality prevention. The approach will be
two pronged: develop a community breast cancer coalition to determine gaps in care,
and institute a patient navigator program both pre and post breast cancer diagnosis.
Funds will be used to develop culturally sensitive programs to increase breast cancer
detection and survival among women in the Potomac Health Foundation service area
within the Prince William Health District.
The coalition will have a broad
focus on the issue of breast
cancer in the community.
However, because African
American women have a higher
breast cancer mortality rate and a
more advanced stage of cancer at
diagnosis, the initial patient
navigator program pilot will
focus on 5,117 African American
women 18 years of age and older
living in the Dumfries and
Triangle areas.

Expanding Access to Dental Services in Prince William County
Affordable access for the uninsured to dental services is very limited in the
Foundation’s service area. This funding will allow low income, uninsured families
access to low cost root canal and crown services. Nearly 10% of our patients (250)
in 2011 did not have access to these services given the Center did not have the
equipment, supplies, laboratory support, provider training, or patient fee subsidy in
place to perform this work on-site.
The Center's integrated and coordinated care service delivery model will facilitate
our dental patient's access to primary, behavioral, and dental services as well, i.e., all
services are under one roof. Our Medicaid eligibility/ renewal staff will foster the
sustainability of this access as we convert self-pay patients to Medicaid patients.
The target patient population
includes approximately 130
medically underserved
patients that reside in the
service area during the grant
period.
