Free mammograms available at DMH

Women age 36 years or older who do not have health insurance and have not had a mammogram within the last year may be eligible for free mammograms.

One in eight West Virginia women is diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Early detection is the best protection against the consequences of breast cancer.

The Tucker County Health Fair 2013 and Mon General Hospital want to help women in our region receive the best preventive screening for breast cancer. Generous donors have agreed to provide funds to help women get a digital screening mammogram at no cost at Davis Memorial Hospital.

The free mammograms will be scheduled on July 16.

To apply, please pick up and complete a free mammography form, which are available in the radiology department of Davis Memorial Hospital. They are also available in the following locations: the Five Rivers Library in Parsons, the Mountaintop Public Library in Thomas, the Tucker County Health Department, the Randolph County Health Department, the Barbour County Health Department, the Grant County Health Department, Mountain Hospice’s main office in Belington and Tyrand Cooperative Ministries.

Free mammography application forms should be mailed to: Debra Dean, Radiology Department, Davis Memorial Hospital, PO Box 1484, Elkins, WV 26241.
