This Saturday, the Maine Breast and Cervical Health Program will team up with the Maine Medical Center Breast Care Center in Scarborough to offer free women’s health screenings in recognition of National Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. Women ages 40-64 with limited or no health insurance can schedule an appointment for free services, including a clinical breast exam, pelvic exam, mammogram, and Pap test.
According to the American College of Radiology and the Society of Breast Imaging, mammograms should begin at age forty for women with an average risk of breast cancer and by thirty for high-risk women. Women that receive a health screening will have the opportunity to enroll in the Maine Breast and Cervical Health Program for ongoing coverage.
The Free Screening Day is an ongoing partnership between the Maine Breast and Cervical Health Program, a statewide program offered through the City of Portland Public Health Division, Health and Human Services, and the Maine Medical Center Breast Care Center.
For more information or to make an appointment, contact Anne Tricomi at 207.541.6955 or via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
