  • Program Overview: This Saint Francis Medical Center program provided three main services to the community: education, lung screenings, and referrals. The core focus of the program was to build sustainable community capacity for health education, outreach, and screening for the early detection of lung cancer and the provision of referrals when necessary. Materials covering general lung health were distributed to each participant regardless of their risk as long as they participated in the lung screening. These materials were available at health fairs as well as scheduled screenings and were usually in the form of flyers or informative brochures.
