In the fight against breast cancer, early detection saves lives. The health care experts at Atlantic Medical Imaging are doing their part by offering women who are uninsured, age 40 or older, and with no current or previous breast issues, the opportunity to receive a free screening mammogram this October.
“We all know that annual mammograms are vitally important,” said Dr. Peggy Avagliano, head of women’s imaging at AMI. “We don’t believe any woman should have to forgo important health care screenings due to lack of insurance.”
The goal of screening exams is to find cancers before they start to spread and cause symptoms. Breast cancers found early during screening exams are far more likely to be smaller and contained, greatly improving the chances of successful treatment.
AMI will be providing free mammograms to those who quality at all nine office locations in Atlantic, Cape May Ocean and Monmouth counties. The program is funded through the generous support of the AMI Foundation.
To schedule an appointment, Atlantic and Cape May county residents may call (609) 677-XRAY (9729).
