Take a minute to check out the new and improved HealthCheck Programs website. The HealthCheck Programs include the Well Woman HealthCheck Program and Fit at Fifty HealthCheck Program. Both of these programs are primarily federally funded through the CDC and provide uninsured Arizonans with vital access to breast, cervical and colon cancer screening and diagnostics. The new website is a vast improvement from its predecessor and will greatly increase access to and awareness of these important programs. If you have any comments or feedback on the new site, please send them to email@example.com.
