Cuyahoga County Board of Health and The Breast and Cervical Cancer Project Northeast Ohio launched a new campaign, My Body Matters, to reduce breast and cervical cancers and increase the number of screenings provided to eligible women in Northeast Ohio.
Starting September 29, 2017, the program will offer free services to eligible women between the ages of 21 and 74 in the 18-county Northeast Ohio region who are underinsured and fall at or below 250% of the federal poverty level.
