Women’s cancer screenings next week

The Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine Breast Education Screening and Navigation Program, one of the college’s Community Health Programs (CHP), will offer a women’s cancer screening clinic with same-day mammography from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 23 at Central Christian Church in Ironton.

The program has long provided mobile women’s cancer screening clinics around southeastern Ohio as part of its mission to improve women’s health in the region. In collaboration with The Ohio State University’s James Comprehensive Mobile Mammography unit, the Heritage College CHP is able to provide women’s cancer screenings with same-day mammography. Services are available to all women, including those uninsured, underinsured or insured.

Services offered through the mobile clinic include breast health education, women’s cancer screenings, PAP tests, breast and pelvic exams, navigation through the continuum of care and mammograms provided by Susan G. Komen Columbus grant funding.

Appointments are required for the mobile clinic, and patients should call 740-593-2432 or 1-800-844-2654 to schedule an appointment.
