Call Today to Find Out if You Qualify, Schedule an Appointment

MACON, GA (Thursday, February 25, 2016) – Breast Care Center, Navicent Health is pleased to announce the availability of 200 free mammograms for women in central Georgia.

The mammograms, made possible through a grant from Susan G. Komen Central Georgia, are available for uninsured and underinsured women residing in Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Jones, Houston, Monroe Peach, and Twiggs Counties. There is no income cap – mammograms are available to any woman without adequate insurance to cover the cost of the screening.

“Many times, you have to fall below the poverty line in order to qualify for free health screenings. That is not the case with these screenings! Thanks to the generosity of Susan G. Komen Central Georgia, women who are uninsured or underinsured and reside in certain central Georgia counties may qualify” said Jill Hancock, RN, manager of Breast Care Center, Navicent Health.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women in the U.S., and affects those from every ethnic and socioeconomic background. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Early detection can save lives. Mammogram screenings are vital for the prevention, early detection and treatment of breast cancer.

Those who may qualify for a free exam may call 478.633.7020 to learn more.
