SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE: 'Mammogram Mondays' Begin in October
Southern Illinois University School of Medicine recently issued the following announcement
Area health organizations have added two new locations to their list of sites offering free mammograms in October: Taylorville and Hillsboro. Women who are uninsured or under-insured can receive a free mammogram each Monday in October. The program will be offered again at two Springfield locations and in Lincoln.
Thanks to a $20,651 grant from the Memorial Affiliate of Susan G. Komen, the Regional Cancer Partnership of Illinois (RCPIL) is able to fund the program for women ages 40 and older. Over the last four years, nearly 400 women have benefited from this annual grant.
"We are very glad to expand the program to Christian and Montgomery counties this year. Early detection of breast cancer is the key to beating the disease,” said Diana Weyhenmeyer, RCPIL chair. “Screening and education are critically important factors for women of all ages and the foundation to continued health.”
Appointments are required. No walk-ins are available at any location. Times and locations for Mammogram Mondays in October (October 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29) include:
