This May show the women in your life that you care. Women’s Health Week is May 12th-18th and Mother’s Day is May 12th. Encourage all mothers, grandmothers, friends and family to take care of themselves by getting a FREE mammogram!
WHAT A one-day community-wide breast-screening event for uninsured or women who have insurance that does not cover the cost of a Clinical Breast Exam & Mammogram. This screening event brings together major cancer fighting organizations in the community- including American Cancer Society, Lewis County Public Health Cancer Services Program of Lewis & Jefferson, healthcare providers, Hospitals, Imaging Centers to help women LOVE YOURSELF and get the life-saving breast screening exams.
WHY With recent news coverage of mammography screening guidelines, women are confused about if, when and how often they need a mammogram. Many women are unaware that there is help available if they are uninsured. The LOVE YOURSELF promotion will urge all women to take a moment to love themselves- and get the life-saving mammogram.
