NACN Update: Recruitment to Mammography through Food Pantries, Indiana County, PA Design: Community- and evidence-based intervention in food pantries with pre-post assessment of screening mammography in Healthy Woman Program Result: Of the 302 age-eligible women, 158 (52.4%) were in need of scheduling a mammogram. Of the 158 women, 138 (87.3%) received a mammogram as a result of the adapted Tell A Friend Program. Three (2.2%) women were diagnosed with breast cancer and received treatment. The number of breast cancer screenings provided to underserved residents increased by 46 (28.2%) during 2005.
