Western UP District Health Department's Director of Health Education, Ray Sharp, created a 5.5" x 8" flyer for the agency to distribute to its clients summarizing BCCCP and the ACA.
WUPDHD is sharing this with the rest of us as an idea for outreach and recruitment.

About the BCCCP
Since 1991, the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has implemented a comprehensive Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP) through a multi-year grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With these funds, low-income women now have access to life-saving cancer screening services and follow-up care, including cancer treatment if that should be needed.
Local Coordinating Agencies
BCCCP services are coordinated through 20 local coordinating agencies (LCAs). These agencies have enlisted the cooperation and participation of physicians, hospitals, and other health care organizations in their communities to assure that all necessary follow-up services are provided.
LCAs are required to provide or arrange for basic screening services, i.e., clinical breast exams, screening mammograms, pelvic exams, Pap smears, and patient education.
