In a continued effort to increase awareness about cervical and breast cancer and enhance access to important screenings, Signature Healthcare, in partnership with the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Foundation’s See, Test & Treat® program, is delivering free ‘same day result’ cervical and breast cancer screening, along with community health education, on Saturday, May 16th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m at Signature Healthcare, 680 Centre Street, Brockton.
Uninsured or underinsured women between the ages of 21 and 64 are invited to join special guest speaker and breast cancer survivor Maria Cardoso, 41 at this event.
Women between the ages of 21 and 64 who pre-register for the cervical cancer screenings will receive PAP and HPV tests performed by qualified medical professional.
Women between the ages of 40 and 64 who pre-register for the breast cancer screenings will receive a breast exam and mammogram from a qualified medical professional.
While waiting for the screening results, attendees can enjoy adult and children’s activities, a mini health fair, and an opportunity to learn about the health insurance marketplace. Once results are received, screening recipients will receive a Wal-Mart gift card and goodie bag. Bilingual staff will be available to answer questions and interpret screening results for attendees.
