In addition, W.O.R.T.H. recently received a new equipment donation from Welch-Allyn valued at over $6,000. New vital signs monitors, lighting sources and disposable equipment will assist the clinic in its efforts to provide affordable health care. The clinic also received a $1,000 grant from the Vanguard charitable foundation and a generous donation from the Rome Strykers motorcycle club. These funds will allow W.O.R.T.H. to fund its next free Pap smear screening day for uninsured women who could not otherwise afford preventive health screening. The funds will also allow the clinic to perform colposcopy and biopsies for women who are screened and found to have abnormal Pap smears.
W.O.R.T.H.’s next free Pap smear screening day is April 28th. The clinic will give priority to uninsured low-income women who have not had a Pap smear in the last three years. Appointments are required. The clinic is located at 1513 Dean St in Rome and may be reached at (706) 232-3408 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. W.O.R.T.H.’s new office hours are Thursday and Friday from 10:00 to 5:00 and Saturdays from noon to 5:00.
