Project Woman Coalition is a nonprofit collaborative organization of representatives from area hospitals, mammography facilities, city, county and state agencies, community-based organizations, physicians, nurses, and breast cancer survivors who share a common goal: To increase breast cancer awareness, to provide access to screening and diagnostic services and to improve the breast health of Oklahoma women.
Project Woman Coalition began in 1989 as a subcommittee of the American Cancer Society. The formation of this was amazing in that all competitive wall between hospitals, screening facilities, and bureaucracies came down when the committee held its first meeting. Over the years, Project Woman Coalition has expanded its services and activities to meet the increasing needs of women in Oklahoma.
In 2000, Project Woman Coalition, Inc. became a free-standing nonprofit organization, receiving IRS 501 (c) 3 status. Over the last eighteen years, Project Woman has delivered over $750,000 in services to qualifying women in central Oklahoma. Since that time recent changes in Oklahoma State legislation have caused PWC to re-evaluate its program of services and to give in-depth consideration to the current needs of the community. During this time of re-evaluation, PWC has ceased delivering services. As program changes are determined, we will make those changes available through the website. In the meantime, should you need assistance, you may contact the Take Charge! program offered by the Oklahoma State Department of Health at 405-271-4072 to see if you qualify for their program
