Mainline cancer grant

The Arkansas Cancer Coalition recently awarded Mainline Health Systems, Inc. a $53,951 grant to implement cancer control efforts that support the Arkansas Cancer Plan.

This funding source will help to research the latest cervical cancer information, educate staff and patients on that information, and promote cervical cancer awareness.

“ACC is committed to reducing the human suffering and economic burden from cancer for the citizens of Arkansas,” said Trena Mitchell, executive director. “By partnering with academic and community-based organizations, we can multiply our efforts by reaching those in counties with the highest needs. Mainline is highly qualified to make an impact on reducing the impact of cancer by implementing the goals and strategies of the Arkansas Cancer Plan.”

“Mainline is very excited to receive this grant award. If this grant can help save at least one person from cervical cancer, then this will all be worth it. We feel privileged to be a part of the efforts of the Arkansas Cancer Coalition, which does a great job of making an impact in Arkansas,” said Amanda Gilbert, director of administration.
