State cancer screening program receives additional funding

Just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, more Hoosiers will now have access to early detection screenings for breast and cervical cancer thanks to a supplemental award from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to the Indiana State Department of Health’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Program.

This award will provide assistance to 900 additional women.  On average, the program serves between 6,000 and 7,000 women each year.

“Each year more than 4,200 Hoosiers are diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 200 are diagnosed with cervical cancer,” said State Health Commissioner Gregory Larkin, M.D.  “We know that early detection is critical to survival rates, and this award will make a direct impact on the lives of women who would not have had access to screenings and diagnostic services otherwise.”

The Indiana Breast and Cervical Cancer Program provides access to breast and cervical cancer screenings, diagnostic testing, and treatment for underserved and underinsured women. The state program is also responsible for implementing CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. Eligibility for the program is determined by age, income and family size.

Indiana Dunes, West Beach vying for Statewide Top 10 status

Two Porter County nature sites could soon be named among the “Best Fall Foliage” spots in Indiana. Indiana Dunes State Park and West Beach are among the sites nominated for inclusion among the top 10 places to view fall foliage in Indiana.

The Top 10 list is being put together by the Indiana Office of Tourism Development (IOTD). Area residents are encouraged to go to and click on “Cast your vote for Fall Favorites” to vote for Indiana Dunes State Park and West Beach. Voting is open through Friday, Oct. 12, and the winners will be announced on Tuesday, Oct. 16. The state’s autumn website will remain up for a month after the winners are announced.

Indiana Dunes Tourism Executive Director Lorelei Weimer said she’d like to see Indiana Dunes State Park and West Beach, which is a site in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, get the recognition they deserve. “If our sites make the top 10 list, it would encourage people to check out the fall foliage in Porter County and spend their money here,” Weimer said.

Indiana Dunes Tourism, the official tourism bureau of Porter County, has put together fall drives to encourage people to see the beauty of Indiana Dunes Country and to stop in our communities for dining, shopping and entertainment.

Senior Medicare Patrol program awarded grant

Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) programs in 53 states and territories were awarded funding from the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living to continue their work of uncovering Medicare fraud and waste.

The grants support the recruitment and training of volunteers that help educate Medicare beneficiaries about how to prevent, detect and report fraud. The increased funding will promote and increase community education and outreach, volunteer recruitment efforts and help enhance program management strategies.

Indiana was awarded $149,936 for its SMPs to work alongside the Indiana Association of Area Agencies on Aging Education Institute. They not only educate, but also provide the tools to help protect senior citizens from fraud. Local SMP offices provide assistance in correcting mistakes and referring the suspected fraud to the appropriate authorities.

“In Indiana, our seniors, caregivers, and Senior Medicare Patrol volunteers are the eyes and ears in the fight against health care fraud,” said Tamra Simpson, Indiana’s SMP program director. “Nationwide, the Senior Medicare Patrol programs have educated more than 2 million beneficiaries on how to identify Medicare fraud. Locally, with this grant, we can recruit and empower more senior volunteers to join us in this important work.”

Indiana seniors that want to volunteer for their local SMP or report suspected health care fraud may call 800-986-3505. For more information, visit . What happened and how do I prevent this in the future
