The vision of the GCCCF is to create a community where every eligible person is screened for colon cancer at the earliest appropriate time.  We collaborate with several community partners so if you're UNINSURED, you've got options!  

Volunteers in Medicine- 423-855-8220

Volunteers in Medicine, Chattanooga, Inc. (VIM Chattanooga) is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) primary care clinic. Volunteer physicians and nurses provide free medical services to financially eligible adults who are uninsured. VIM is a primary care service and can refer you to a specialist at Project Access if needed.

Project Access - 423-826-0269

Project Access was created to help uninsured individuals get the health care they need by linking local physicians, hospitals, and local health clinics that agree to donate their services to the individuals and families in need of health care services.  If you live outside Hamilton County, call your local Health Department to find out about resources like Project Access in your area.
