Sisters By Choice
Sisters by Choice (SBC) is an innovative leader in breast cancer education, awareness and support for women and men diagnosed with breast cancer. SBC was founded in 1989 by Dr. Rogsbert F. Phillips-Reed, a prominent Atlanta-based breast surgeon and has evolved into a multi-faceted organization providing services for the uninsured and underserved men and women. SBC provides over 1000 free mammograms and breast exams to uninsured, unemployed, homeless women each year. We also provide free educational seminars, workshops, and health fairs to promote breast cancer awareness.
This year, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and thousands will not receive lifesaving screenings and treatment because they either lack access or resources to receive quality breast care. Because Georgia has elected not to expand its Medicaid coverage more than 280,000 Georgia adults fallen have fallen into the “coverage gap”. More than half of them are women. Geographically, we have 159 counties in our state. 79 of those counties are without an OB/GYN and 66 counties are without a general surgeon. Sisters By Choice is committed to addressing these health disparities, especially with regards to breast cancer. That is why SBC has been raising much needed dollars and other support to build a state-of-the-art mobile breast clinic. In 2015 WE DID IT!
Unlike most mobile mammography clinics, the SBC Mobile Breast Clinic can provide full service care with a breast specialist on site. Those services include breast examinations, digital mammograms and remote radiology support, comprehensive diagnostic testing, (i.e. ultrasound, needle biopsy, patient navigation, and prevention education, treatment referral and access to clinical trials).
