Blue Mountain Health System offers no-cost mammorgrams for uninsured, underinsured
Blue Mountain Health System will offer a mammogram clinic from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 19 at the Gnaden Huetten campus, 211 N. 12th St. in Lehighton.
Breast cancer screening looks for signs of cancer before a woman has symptoms. Screening can help find breast cancer early, when the chance of successful treatment is best.
Two tests are commonly used to screen for breast cancer: mammogram, a low-dose X-ray exam of the breasts to look for changes that are not normal, and clinical breast exam. The clinic includes a free mammogram and CBE with a health care professional.
A prescription for a screening mammogram will be supplied.
This clinic is open to people who are uninsured or underinsured only. Co-sponsored by the Women’s 5K Classic.
Appointments are limited and registration is required at 610-377-7070.
