Qualified women up to the age of 65 with little or no health insurance can get a free mammogram in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
Mammograms are available at Seminole Tribe Health Department clinics. Also, the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and its partners at health care providers across the area are teaming up to offer the free service.
DOH provides free screenings to women up to age 65 who do not have coverage for the tests. They can also receive free clinical breast exams and breast health information.
Women ages 50 to 64 without coverage will be screened by the DOH Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. The program uses many partner agencies around the community to provide the free tests.
Qualified women under age 50 will be connected to other agencies that offer free mammograms, funded by grants from organizations such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. For more information call 954-962-2009 or the DOH at 954-762-3649 to learn if you qualify and to register for a free mammogram.
