Free mammograms for women who meet eligibility criteria

Uninsured and low-income women in Long County can observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by getting a life-saving screening.

Long County Health Department’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP) is partnering with the Southeast Georgia Health System Breast Care Center’s Mobile Mammography Program to enroll women into BCCP, provide breast screenings and offer free mammograms from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at the IGA on Highway 84 in Ludowici.

Women who meet certain annual income guidelines and are 40-64 years of age without insurance will be eligible to receive a screening mammogram at no cost.
