FREE Breast Cancer Screenings
For immediate Release:
October 10 | 9:00 am - noon
WASHINGTON October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month - the month dedicated to educating women about breast cancer by stressing the importance of early detection through regular self-breast exams and mammography. More than 6,300 women in eastern North Carolina are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. We know that early detection saves lives. Vidant Beaufort Hospital, the Marion L. Shepard Cancer Center and local physician practices are offering free breast cancer screenings.
Several physician practices in Beaufort County will be hosting free breast cancer screenings during the month of October. The screening is a clinical breast exam offered in a private setting by a medical provider.
Representatives from the Beaufort County Health department will be on hand with information about the
breast and cervical cancer control program (BCCCP) and appointments for mammograms can be scheduled if necessary. The dates, times and locations of the screenings are:
