Healthy People Partnership

A variety of cancer screenings are available through the Healthy People Partnership. Eligible men and women can receive services through this program.

Early detection of cancer is very important for successful treatment of cancer. Do not neglect yourself! Take care of your self by having recommended cancer screenings.

Services are coordinated through local partnerships. In Greene County the services are coordinated by the Columbia-Greene Healthy People Partnership, a program of the Columbia County Healthcare Consortium. If you qualify for the Healthy People Partnership you may ask to receive your services from Greene County Family Planning or from another provider who is a partner of the Healthy People Partnership.
