Mobile Health Unit offering free breast health education for October
October is breast cancer awareness month. Early detection practices like mammograms, clinical breast exams, and breast self-exams remain some of the most important ways to catch breast cancer early and increase survival rates.
During October, Wellness Outreach professionals will provide breast health education, and information about the free mammography voucher program offered by the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte, whereby women who cannot afford their annual screening mammogram or follow-up testing can have these services done for free at La Porte Hospital, Starke Hospital, or LifePlex Imaging in Plymouth. Free heel bone density screenings for osteoporosis will also be available through the Mobile Health Unit in October.
