CFH in Oxnard Offers Free Mammograms on Jan. 23
Oxnard, California, 01/12/2010
Community Memorial Health System is offering free mammograms and healthcare education to the first 35 women who qualify at its Center for Family Health on Citrus Grove in Oxnard on Saturday, January 23.
The women will arrive early at the CFH office at 250 W. Citrus Grove, Suite 150, where they will be transported to The Breast Center at Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura, and then back to the Centers office.
In 2008, an estimated 182,460 new cases of breast cancer occurred in the United States, and early detection and awareness is the key to fighting this life-threatening disease. The Healthy Women’s Program provided through Community Memorial Health System benefits women in the community who are uninsured, under-insured or lack funds to pay for mammograms and follow-up treatment, if necessary.
“These women have nowhere else in the county to go to get these services; that’s why they come to us,” said Petra Luna, education manager for Centers for Family Health.
The Healthy Women’s Program is made possible through funds raised by the Community Memorial Healthcare Foundation’s annual Gold Dust Gala, along with the generous support of the Wallis Foundation.
To find out if you qualify for this program, call 805/651-2661. For more information on the Healthy Women’s Program visit www.cmhshealth.org/healthywomen.
