Sign-ups are continuing for free mammograms
October is recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
For the past three years Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe and Barton HealthCare System have partnered to offer complimentary mammogram screening for uninsured Tahoe residents.
Applications are available at the Family Resource Center, El Dorado Public Health Department, Stateline Medical Center and Barton Community Clinic.
Financial need will be evaluated and once the application is approved, women will be given a number to call for Monday through Friday screening mammograms to be done at either Barton Hospital or Stateline Medical Center.
Interpretations of the exam results will be done on a complimentary basis by Sierra Nevada Medical Imaging radiologists. Interested parties must go to one of the location to complete and application.
No phone calls will be accepted for this program.
