The Martinsville Henry County Coalition is pleased to have been featured in the VCU Massey Cancer Center’s newsletter earlier in May.
Project COALESCE is a partnership of the Martinsville Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness and VCU Massey Cancer Center. The project focuses on increasing colon and cervical cancer screening access for FQHC patients.
“Project COALESCE gives us an excellent opportunity to better study the data and barriers to cancer screenings in our community,” said Marcus Stone, executive director of MHCCHW. “Primary and preventive care play a pivotal role in early detection. If patients can access health care and are actively involved in their primary care, it can significantly improve their health outcomes.”
