Currently, there are no mammogram machines on the island of Eleuthera. Women need to travel to New Providence for a scan at an average travel cost of $500. A needs assessment completed by Emory University's Global Health Institute indicated that there are 3,000 women over the age of 30 on Eleuthera who should be screened yearly. Due to underemployment, 57% are not able to afford to travel to New Providence for a scan. The Rotary Club of Eleuthera (RCE) has been working in partnership with One Eleuthera Foundation (OEF) and Cancer Society Eleuthera to secure a mammogram machine to be located in the Cancer Society Wellness Center (CSWC) on Eleuthera. Delivery of a machine, which was donated to the Bahamian Government by US Northcom, is tentatively scheduled to arrive at CSWC within the next few months. The mammogram machine will be the main component of OEF’s Eleuthera Imaging Program (EIP), which also includes securing an ultrasound machine.
Rotary Club of Eleuthera would like to partner with other rotary clubs in The Bahamas to help Rotary Club of Eleuthera  and One Eleuthera Foundation  achieve their funding goals for the BCOP portion of the EIP project. Suggested donation is $5,000 from each club that would like to participate.
