The Health Department wants to help all DuPage County women protect themselves against the most common threats to their health, including breast cancer, cervical cancer and heart disease. Early detection and regular testing are the best defenses against these threats. Remember that breast cancer is the most common cancer among women and heart disease is the leading cause of death.
We offer two important programs to women who are underinsured or have no health insurance. The Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP) offers free screenings to detect breast cancer or cervical cancer, both of which have better treatment results if detected early. IBCCP is available throughout Illinois, but the Health Department only serves DuPage County residents, Women enrolled in IBCCP whose income is less than 250 percent of the Federal Poverty Level may enroll in Illinois WISEWOMAN Program (IWP). Services are provided at the same time as IBCCP screenings.
