“See, Test & Treat has touched the lives of thousands of underserved women across the United States by providing free cervical and breast cancer screening, same-day results and follow-up treatment and care,” said Joseph Lucci III, M.D., UT Physicians obstetrician and gynecologist. “See, Test & Treat can lead to early detection of cervical and breast cancer and save lives.”
All screenings will be performed by obstetrician and gynecology residents and board certified obstetricians, gynecologists, gynecologic oncologists and pathologists from UT Physicians. Pap tests, mammograms (ages 40 to 64) and testing for human papillomavirus (HPV) will be available with same-day results. Women should expect to wait up to three hours for results. Bilingual staff and ancillary services will be available.
“While women wait for their test results, they can enjoy a healthy meal with their families and clinic volunteers, building a relationship between communities and health care providers,” Dr. Lucci said. “Moreover, patients connect with a medical home and insurance market place navigators for better long-term health outcomes.”
