In addition to funding, several organizations contribute time and resources to help ABCCEDP reach and serve women in Alabama. Often our partners recruit providers to participate, educate women about the importance of screening, refer women to our program and provide money for screening and diagnostic services. Without their work across the state and in each community, the program would not be successful. Such partners include:
- American Cancer Society
- Avon Breast Health Outreach Program
- Deep South Network
- UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center
- USA Mitchell Cancer Institute
- REACH US
- State of Alabama
