VIDEO: Breast cancer screening lacking in women experiencing homelessness

CHICAGO — Just 18% of women experiencing homelessness who were eligible underwent a mammography over a 5-year period, according to research presented at ASCO Annual Meeting.
“In contrast, for women not experiencing homelessness, the rate was 32%, so almost double,” Chirag S. Shah, MD, a staff member in the department of radiation oncology and co-director of the Comprehensive Breast Program at Cleveland Clinic, told Healio about results from the poster.
Researchers identified women experiencing homelessness who presented for care in a hospital system starting January 2014
