Free Mammograms, Education Offered at Community Outreach Day
Ventura, California, 09/06/2011
Community Memorial Health System’s Healthy Women’s Program is hosting a Community Outreach Day in Oxnard which offers free mammograms and healthcare education to the first 35 women who qualify. It will take place at the Center for Family Health—Airport Marina office on Saturday, Sept. 24.
The women will arrive early at the CFH office at 3651 West 5th Street where they will be transported to The Breast Center at Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura, and then back to the center’s office.
In 2010, an estimated 209,060 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.
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.
