The Switzerland Co Health Dept is providing free mammograms to women age 40 and over or under age 40 who have a history of breast cancer in the immediate family. This program is provided by a grant from Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness. IBCAT receives funds through sales of breast cancer awareness specialty license plates. Through these sales, monies are available for grants deemed to best address the unmet screening needs of the people of Indiana.
If it has been at least a year since your last screening call the Switzerland Co Health Dept and ask for Betty Lucas or Donna Faber at 812-427-3220 for more information on scheduling your appointment. This program will run from March 17 -October 31, 2014 or until appointments are filled.
