BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- The St. Vincent's SWIM Women's Imaging Center will offer free and low-cost digital mammography screenings for women age 40 and older in Bridgeport, Trumbull, and Milford.
The latest American Cancer Society guidelines recommend that all women have a mammogram by age 40, and then every year thereafter. Mammograms are free for those who do not have health insurance, have financial limitations and qualify for assistance.
Screenings will be held:
- Tuesday, Dec.1: Milford Health & Wellness Center, 199 Cherry St., Milford, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Friday, Dec. 4: Trumbull Medicine, 17 Church Hill Road, Trumbull, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Saturday, Dec. 19: Emanuel Assembly of God, 331 Madison Ave., Bridgeport from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For those who do not have insurance, but do not qualify for free services, mammograms are discounted.
Appointments are required for this exam. For those that have insurance, please bring your card at time of visit. To schedule an appointment or to find out when the mobile mammography unit will be in your area, call St. Vincent's SWIM Women's Imaging Center at (203) 576-5500.
