Broward Health and the Florida Department of Health in Broward County will be offering women with little or no health insurance a free mammogram this Saturday, September 17. The organization will hold the event for women up to age 65 at the Lillian S. Wells Women’s Health Center in Fort Lauderdale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We are happy to partner with Broward Health once again for these very important services to the community,” said Dr. Paula Thaqi, Director of DOH-Broward. The special event will offer free mammograms, clinical breast exams and breast health information. Qualified women ages 50 to 64 who do not have coverage will be served by DOH-Broward’s Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. Women of color under age 50 will be served by Broward Health’s breast cancer program, which is funded by a grant from Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.“We will be offering qualified women in our community a great opportunity,” said Pia Delvaille, Manager of the Wells Women’s Center. “We encourage all to take advantage.”
