UR Medicine Breast Imaging to Offer Free Mammograms September 15 and October 6
Thursday, September 13, 2018
In honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, UR Medicine Breast Imaging – in conjunction with the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester, Cancer Services Program of Monroe County, and Susan G. Komen Upstate NY – is offering free annual mammograms to women age 40 and older. The screening sessions will be held at UR Medicine Breast Imaging at Anthony Jordan Health Center on Saturday, September 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and UR Medicine Breast Imaging at Red Creek on Saturday, October 6 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Appointments are required. To schedule a mammogram, call (585) 487-3304. These sessions are aimed at providing mammograms for people who are uninsured or underinsured. Transportation is available for those who may need it, and financial assistance is available to women with high deductible plans.
UR Medicine Breast Imaging has been offering free mammograms for the past decade and has served hundreds of women who may not have been screened otherwise. Mammography can detect breast cancer that is too small for women to find with a self-exam and early diagnosis is the best weapon in the fight against breast cancer.
Parking is free and refreshments will be provided. Women who cannot make the screening are encouraged to schedule an appointment for a different day by calling (585) 487-3304.
