Saint Thomas Medical Partners Receives Komen Central TN Grant



Saint Thomas Medical Partners (STMP) is honored to accept a $69,972 grant for Our Mission
in Motion (OMIM). The mobile mammography program has screened 21,111 women at 1,420 events since 2011. OMIM prioritizes uninsured, low-income women in historically underserved communities.

Awarded by Susan G. Komen Central Tennessee, the grant will enable OMIM to provide more than 500 free mammograms in a one-year period to women in 11 of the 42 counties in Komen’s Tennessee service area. This grant focuses on uninsured African American and Hispanic women.

Mobile mammography eliminates time and transportation barriers to increase the number of women having annual mammograms. The OMIM program ensures accessibility by traveling at least five days each week to reach women at community clinics, health departments, banks, schools, churches, and places of employment.

“Saint Thomas Medical Partners and Our Mission in Motion continues its strong partnership with Susan G. Komen Central Tennessee,” said Yvette Doran, President and CEO, Saint Thomas Medical Partners. “These grants support our ability to serve more women across Tennessee and enable us to bring potentially life-saving mammograms to many women who might otherwise not be able to care for their health.”

OMIM supports the shared objectives of STMP and Susan G. Komen—increasing the availability and affordability of breast health services and developing partnerships with health providers to reach uninsured, underserved, low-income and minority women.
