Cindy on Ladies First

Cindy Krautheim - Bennington, Vermont

Cindy started working for Ladies First about a year ago.

The CDC gives a grant to every state for breast cancer prevention. In recent years ovarian cancer and cardiovascular risk assessments have been added. When she was young Ladies First would pay for mammograms for women who didn't have insurance. Now, with the ACA, women without insurance still get a mammogram and pap smear paid for by Ladies First. Women with and without insurance who are over 30 and would benefit from physical exercise get a membership to a gym, and Ladies First covers the deductible for insured women.

Cindy explains who is eligible- and that many more women can benefit from Ladies First than think they can.

In Bennington Cindy has expanded the fitness center options- women can now choose between 5 different centers.
