ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Breast and Cervical Cancer death rates for black women are among the highest in the nation.

Armed with a $40,000 grant an Albany organization hopes to change that.

Higher screening rates could substantially reduce the number of cancer deaths.

Through a partnership with Morehouse School of Medicine and Emory Prevention Research Center, The Samaritan Clinic in Albany will receive $40,000 over a two year period to promote breast and cervical cancer screenings.

The clinic will hold a Women's Free Clinic Day each month.
