ELIZABETH — The North Jersey Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® has awarded grant funding to two programs at Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Union County to provide breast health services to medically underserved and uninsured populations.
The Trinitas Made for Me Boutique is a bi-lingual program that provides free and low-cost wigs, prosthetic forms, mastectomy bras and lymphedema products to low-income women throughout northern New Jersey.
The Trinitas Breast Health Outreach Program is designed to improve the community’s breast cancer awareness and education levels while encouraging early screening and detection among women. The program takes a comprehensive approach to breast health, guiding women through the full circle of care. Breast health services are brought directly into the communities where underserved women live and work to alleviate transportation barriers and to provide a comfortable, peer-driven atmosphere that dispels the fear and embarrassment associated with proper breast health care.
