More than 150 Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) team members, their family and friends participated in the 2023 Inland Empire More Than Pink Walk last month to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
The 2023 Inland Empire More Than Pink Walk marked IEHP’s third year participating in the fundraising effort as both a team and event sponsor, this time bringing in more than $10,000 for the cause.
“IEHP continues to support this walk as the Susan G. Komen Foundation is a trusted, go-to resource for timely, accurate breast health and breast cancer information, services and resources,” explained Susie White, IEHP’s chief operating officer. “Our vision is to not rest until our communities enjoy optimal care and vibrant health, and we want to ensure the community has access to quality screening, diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer.”
One of those resources is the Komen Patient Care Center, a free and personalized service available to patients, caregivers and family members. The service offers education and information, emotional support, financial assistance, and screening and diagnostics. To learn more about the center, go to www.komen.org or call 877-465-6636.
IEHP members also have access to breast cancer resources and services at www.iehp.org or through Member Services at 800-440-IEHP (4347). IEHP encourages members to begin scheduling screenings as early as age 40 since early detection is key.
