Breast Cancer Awareness is Vital to Your Health
Free walk-in Breast Exam, T-Shirt and Mammogram referral on Tuesday, November 3rd
Other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the U.S. and the second leading cause of cancer death among women. Every year, about 200,000 new cases of breast cancer are reported nationwide and more than 40,000 women die from this disease.*
The Pickens County Health Department is offering free walk-in Breast Exam, T-Shirt and Mammogram referral, if needed on Tuesday November 3rd from 8-11 am or 1-5 pm. No appointment needed but you must be between the ages of 40-64 and have no insurance to qualify.
Getting mammograms regularly can help prevent breast cancer. If you are 50 to 74 years old, be sure to have a screening mammogram every two years. If you are 40 to 49 years old, talk to your county health department or your healthcare provider about when to start and how often to get a screening mammogram.
The Pickens County Health Department is located on 60 Health Way, Jasper, GA 30143. Phone (706) 253-2821.
