PRLog - May 16, 2012 - CHARLESTON, S.C. -- The Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic is a recent recipient of a grant from the Lowcountry Affiliate of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for 2012-2013 in the amount of $33,943.50.   The program goal,  "All Woman are Worthy of Care-Breast Health Initiative," is to use nurse case management to improve breast health for the patients served by the clinic by providing screening mammograms and diagnostic follow up of abnormal mammograms at no charge to 200 patients.

She reviews abnormal breast reports, recommends a plan of care, and provides follow up breast exams and procedures at no charge to the patient. “Providing comprehensive care for the women facing a breast health issue without a healthcare payer source is important to me,” says Beatty. Wanda Lefler-Weart of the Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic states, “The staff at the Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic is excited about this grant and we are most appreciative of Dr. Beatty’s contributions to women and their families. It does take all of us to demonstrate that all women are worthy of care.  Dr. Beatty not only understands the concept but practices it.”
