Kentucky health department kiosk targets underprivileged women

 
Sept. 28, 2012

The Warren County, Ky., Health Department has introduced the Women's Health Kiosk, aimed to help women who are either unable to, or choose not to, seek medical attention or preventative care, according to an article on wbko.com.

The kiosk is located in the waiting area of the county's health department, and is free to use. Services will be available in both English and Spanish.

"Preventive health care is what saves lives, and there is a targeted population of women who don't seek preventive care, because of multiple barriers," said Eleanor Jordan, director of the Commission on Women. "We believe that this is one of the things that will cut through those barriers."
