SOMC providing free breast cancer screenings

Southern Ohio Medical Center will be providing free clinical breast exams in the months of April and May. The exams are provided for women who are uninsured or underinsured through the Hands of Hope program, which is funded by the Columbus Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The screenings will take place at the SOMC Breast Center from 9am until noon on April 24, May 19 and May 22.

Screenings conducted at the SOMC Breast Center will offer same-day mammography if needed. If you are age 40 or older, or younger with a family history of breast cancer, or have an abnormal finding on a self-breast exam, you can register by calling the SOMC Volunteer Office at 740-356-8234.
