Georgia's Breast Cancer License Tag


About the Georgia Breast Cancer License Tag

PURPOSE: Generate funds to provide education, screening and treatment to underserved Georgians.

NEED: Breast cancer accounts for 3 out of 10 new cancers in Georgia women, making it most prevalent of all cancers. Rural women and minority women have less access to care and are a priority of the program.

BACKGROUND: Kaiser Permanente and the Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education (Georgia CORE) worked with the Georgia General Assembly to create the Breast Cancer License Tag program in 2002. Georgia CORE and the State Office of Rural Health have jointly administered the program since 2013.
