Free Mammograms to be Offered Through GCHD
The Genesee County Health Department’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP) has received funding from the State to provide free mammograms and pap smears for women ages 40-49 who qualify through September 30, 2012.
In the past, BCCCP has been able to provide free mammograms and pap smears to women ages 40-64 who qualify. Due to state budget cuts, the funding for screening services for women aged 40-49 was reduced. Therefore, BCCCP had only been able to provide services to women ages 50-64. The State has now found the additional funding to allow BCCCP to screen women ages 40-49 who qualify through September 30,2012.
If you are a women age 40-64, and it has been a year since your last mammogram, please contact the BCCCP at (810) 237-4545 to see if you qualify for a free mammogram and/or pap smear. Again, the additional funding for women ages 40-49 is only for a limited time, so call now!
