Early Detection of Lung Cancer

About This Grant:

Free ME from Lung Cancer plans to collaborate with Central Maine Medical Center and Mercy Hospital’s early detection program in order to increase awareness of the importance of early detection through low-dose CT scans, educate the community and providers about the program so they can be familiar with it and utilize its services, provide public service announcements promoting early detection, provide financial assistance to those in need so access to this potentially lifesaving diagnostic test is available and increase smoking cessation outreach. The public and many providers are not aware of the data supporting screening or are unsure how to access such screenings. This would provide a tremendous opportunity to gain momentum for a very important public health service and potentially have a significant impact on the overall health of the people of the State of Maine.
