Free Clinical Breast Exams



Press Release

Washington Regional

Free Clinical Breast Exams

The Cancer Support Home will offer FREE Clinical Breast Exams throughout 2006, at both the Bentonville Home and the Fayetteville Home. All clinics take place on a Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The examinations are offered at no cost to the public and are performed by physicians and registered nurse practitioners. Appointments are required.

Remaining clinic dates for 2006 are:

July 22- Bentonville

October 7- Fayetteville

This service is offered in an effort to stress the importance of early detection of breast cancer, and is made available through a grant received from the Susan G. Komen Ozark Race for the Cure.

Please note: This exam is a manual exam performed by a licensed practitioner. It is NOT a mammogram. However, follow-up mammography and imaging services for women without insurance coverage for mammography are also available through our program.

Translation services can be provided if needed for Spanish-speaking women. We will need to know of the requirement at the time the appointment is made.

Participants must call the Cancer Support Home at (479) 271-2257 in Bentonville or (479) 521-8024 in Fayetteville for an appointment. The Cancer Support Home, a service of Washington Regional, is located at 306 Highway 72 East in Bentonville.

The Cancer Support Home, Washington Regional Medical Foundation and the Ozark Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Ozark Race for the Cure make the NO EXCUSES project possible.
