April 3, 2017 – “Reaching Out” is partnering with Open Door Health Services to offer free breast exams 5:30-7:30 p.m. April 17 at Open Door Health Services, 333 S. Madison St.
Early detection is the key to effective treatment of breast cancer, the most common form of cancer in women in the U.S., according to a release. Clinical breast exams performed by a doctor are recommended every one to three years for women ages 20-39 and every 1-2 years for those 40 years and older.
Free clinical breast exams will be provided by Open Door Health Services nurse practitioners. Mammograms if recommended will be scheduled for a later date. Mammograms will be offered at no charge for women who qualify.
All women are welcome. Appointments are required. For more information or appointments, call 765-284-9063.
