In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sutter Diagnostic Imaging in Roseville performed more than 100 free digital screening mammograms to uninsured women more than 40 years of age.
In addition to the free mammograms an insurance enrollment specialist from Covered California provided education, outreach and enrollment services, and a volunteer from the federally qualified health center WellSpace Health provided information about other various community resources and services available.
Early detection of breast cancer can lead to a longer, healthier life. Unfortunately some women view mammograms as optional, especially those without insurance. The women who underwent mammogram screenings will receive their results from Sutter Diagnostic Imaging within several days after their visit.
