Well Woman Program

The Well Woman Program was established to provide preventative health screening services for all women for early detection and intervention.

As part of this program Registered Nurses (RN) and the Nurse Practitioner (NP) provide:

  • primary screening for cervical cancer by performing Pap tests
  • primary screening for breast cancer through breast exams
  • secondary screening for hypertension
  • immunizations as needed
  • secondary screening for other health issues as needed

RN well woman appointments are offered at the Marathon Family Health Team, while the NP brings this program to teenage girls at the Marathon High School clinic.

Physicians provide consultations at the well woman appointment if needed, and referrals are made to physicians and other health care providers for follow-up appointments as needed.
