Encore Plus

In 1994, the YWCA board of directors implemented the EncorePlus Program to provide under-insured women with a free clinical breast exam and mammogram screening. The YWCA has collaborated with the Watts Healthcare Corporation and St. Mary’s Hospital in Long Beach to provide mammograms at strategic locations throughout the South Bay area. Our main goal is to detect early signs of breast cancer and provide resources to those diagnosed with the disease.
