AIP partners with Aspirus Wausau Hospital and other private groups to offer discounted rates on breast biopsy procedures known as the Pink Shield Program.  The women in this Program are those who have been accepted into the Wisconsin Well Women's Program (WWWP), but due to cuts, the number of women accepted in the WWWP has drastically reduced.  The Pink Shield Program is a grant funded program through Susan G. Komen that helps offset those costs for these women.  AIP accepts the reimbursement that WWWP would have paid (for the initial biopsy only).  This grant begins in April of each year, and AIP has been a partner since 2009.

  AIP is a proud sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure which raises funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement. AIP staff contributed to the fight against breast cancer by participating in their first race in 2014.
