Project Accessibility: Removing Barriers for Women with Disabilities

Hospitals pass muster on mammogram access for disabled women - (Billings Gazette)

"In the United States in 2008, women with a disability aged 50-74 reported a lower rate of mammography use than women without a disability of the same ages (78.1 percent versus 82.6 percent), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Studies also show higher rates of death related to breast cancer among women with a disability, even when diagnosed at the same stage as women without a disability, according to the CDC." (Cindy Uken, Billings Gazette)

Komen Montana is partnering with The University of Montana Rural Institute: A Center for Excellence in Disabilities Education, Research and Services, and the American Association on Health and Disability on “Project Accessibility: Removing Barriers for Women with Disabilities."
