Here’s a link to check eligibility for free health screenings for women who do not have health insurance.

The program enrolls Kansas women at average risk who meet the income eligibility and:
* are 40 to 64 years old for cervical cancer screenings
* are 45 to 64 years old for breast cancer screenings
* do not have health insurance

Researchers from The University of Michigan Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation are doing a research project on women’s health and disability. They are interested in connecting with women with physical disabilities living in Lyon County. We are helping spread the word to women in our community!

The researchers want to hear from you and get your opinion about important areas of your health as a woman. They will travel to Emporia, Kansas to host a focus group of 8 to 10 women. Women in this study will receive $25 as a thanks for their time.

If you are between 18 and 50 years old and have some limitation in your mobility for at least 6 months and need some help with either personal care and/or routine needs, like everyday chores or going to the store you may be eligible.
