October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and Sutter Imaging is offering free mammograms for uninsured women at 10 of its locations.
During every Saturday of the month, physicians at one or several imaging centers will perform free digital screenings for uninsured women who call and make appointments in advance. When abnormalities are found, women will be directed to follow-up resources in their communities, according to a Sutter news release.
Sutter began Free Mammography Day in 2009 at Auburn Faith, and has continued to add locations over the past five years. Each location has 30 to 70 appointment slots, and the program will serve about 500 women throughout the month.
