(ATLANTIC) Cass County Health System and Cass County Home Care announce the availability of free women’s health screenings.
Karla Akers, Care for Yourself Coordinator at Cass County Home Care, says the screenings include mammograms, clinical breast exams, and pelvic exams with or without pap smears.
“Jenny Edmundson wrote a Komen grant for mammography screenings, so between Jenny Edmundson and Cass County Memorial Hospital and the Care for Yourself program, we linked together to combine our services for women ages 40 to 64,” said Akers. “There are no necessary income guidelines or insurance requirements for those mammograms, so we just want any woman that needs to have a mammogram to call us. We do have other services provided through the Care for Yourself program and there are some income guidelines for those, but there are also some additional screenings that could go hand-in-hand with the mammograms.”
Enrollment numbers are limited and services must be completed by the end of March. Women interested in accessing the women’s health screenings should contact Karla Akers at 712-243-7443.
