Rural Initiative

PBH's Rural Initiative works to decrease the number of breast cancer deaths by increasing the up-to-date mammography rate throughout the 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle. PBH provides no-cost mammograms to uninsured women aged 40 an over, who have not had a mammogram in the last 12 months and whose household income is not more than 400 percent of the poverty rate. Screening are also available for those under 40 and male with a physician's referral.

In addition to screening and diagnostic mammograms, PBH funds ultrasounds and biopsies as needed through BSA Harrington Breast Center. PBH also contract with Pampa Regional Medical Center for screening mammograms. Individuals who travel 100 miles or more roundtrip to receive breast cancer screening services receive a gift card to offset travel expenses.

Panhandle Breast Health continues to explore ways to make getting breast cancer screening more accessible throughout the Texas Panhandle. During 2023, PBH staff and volunteers attended health and resource fairs, along with other events, in Hereford, Pampa, Canyon, Miami, Friona, Wellington, Dumas, Spearman, and Clarendon.
