Hartford Hospital’s Digital Mobile Mammography Coach will be at the Plainville Senior Center, 200 East St., Thursday, March 8, from 9 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Screening is by appointment only. Appointments can be made through the Plainville Senior Center at 860-747-5728. This screening is available to: Women over the age of 40; women whose last mammogram was more than 12 months ago; women who have no breast problems, such as suspicious lumps, abnormal swelling bleeding from nipples or unusual tenderness; women who are not pregnant; women who have not had any type of breast biopsy or breast surgery since their last mammogram; women who have not had a history of breast cancer in the past three years. Hartford Hospital’s program makes it easier for women to have a screening mammogram -- the best tool for identifying breast cancer in its earliest stages. The program is designed to reach women who would otherwise not have access to mammography services, including women without insurance coverage. While insurance is accepted, mammography screenings are free for women with no insurance. No one will be turned away for inability to pay. Please call The Plainville Senior Center at 860-747-5728 to register.
