Team SCH

Team SCH Mag Mile

Join Team SCH in 2017 to get fit, have fun and make a difference! Team SCH athletes will be raising funds to increase access to mammograms for uninsured, low-income women through the Community Breast Health Program.

Swedish Covenant Hospital’s Community Breast Health Program serves women who face the greatest challenges accessing breast cancer detection and treatment due to financial, cultural, and language barriers. In addition to cancer detection services, such as mammograms, ultrasounds and biopsies, the program provides breast health education and access to a navigation team that works with breast cancer patients from diagnosis through survivorship. All of these services are provided at no cost to women in need. Last year, more than 1,300 women received free breast cancer screenings through the program. The average cost of each screening is between $115 and $150.
