Falmouth, Maine. Maine Cancer Foundation has announced $325,229 in awards to ten Maine organizations, including an effort to bring a revolutionary lung cancer screening technology to four Maine hospitals.
Known as “low-dose CT scans” (LDCT), the new technique allows doctors to detect lung tumors at stage one and stage two, a time when treatments are more effective. Historically, most lung cancers are detected at stage three or four when obvious symptoms appear and the odds successful treatment are slim.
Lewiston – Maine Community Health Options (MCHO), a leading nonprofit health insurance CO-OP, today announced $500,000 in community benefit awards in support of eight non-profit organizations that are advancing community health improvement and reducing barriers to accessing health care services throughout Maine. The awards made by the MCHO Board of Directors are focused on system enhancements and leveraging capacity to support the furtherance of evidence-based programs and organizations.
