Breast Cancer Screening -- Greene CountyMar 4 10:00am
Cornerstone Care’s “Dancing with a Pink Ribbon” project is officially underway in Greene County. Cornerstone Care has expanded this program funded by Komen Pittsburgh affiliate which provides Clinical Breast exams and prescriptions for mammograms for men and women ages 42 and over. This program targets the importance of early detection and prevention of breast cancer. Afraid you can’t afford it? You Can! We bill your insurance directly and provide FREE vouchers for mammograms for the uninsured and underinsured.
The mobile unit will be at the Flenniken Public Library, 102 E. George St. in Carmichaels on Monday, March 4th from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Please call the library at (724) 966-5263 to register. The library is participating in this important initiative because providing access to health literacy is a vital part of its mission.
Cornerstone Care is providing free health worker training to individuals who would like to assist the outreach department in providing educational events in the local community.
Sharon Heath, Outreach Specialist coordinating the project said, “I would like to invite community organizations and businesses to contact me about scheduling our mobile unit to provide onsite clinical breast exams for their employees and members.” She said, “This program exists because last year it was estimated that 100,000 Pennsylvania women in need of a mammogram did not have access to one. We are here to provide that access. Please contact me.”
