Utah Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening Program
The Utah Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening Program (UBCCP) partners with local health departments, community clinics, hospitals and healthcare professionals to help those with low incomes who do not have adequate insurance gain access to timely breast and cervical cancer screening, diagnostic and treatment services.
The Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening Program focuses on factors at the interpersonal, organization, community, and policy levels that influence screening.
