De Casa En Casa
About the Program
The overall goal of De Casa en Casa is to reduce the burden of cervical cancer in our border community by facilitating early diagnosis and access to treatment. This program is comprised of an educational session and no-cost cancer screening and diagnostic testing.
Eligible participants must be women between the ages of 21 and 65 who are uninsured/underinsured and not up-to-date with cervical cancer screening, and have a Texas address. Exclusion criteria include past history of cervical cancer or hysterectomy.
The counties serviced by De Casa en Casa include: Dimmit, Edwards, Kinney, LaSalle, Maverick, Real, Uvalde, and Val Verde.
This program has been funded by two Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) grants since 2013. The program covers 105 West Texas counties.
