On Wednesday, January 25, the Center for Breast Health will be offering free breast health screenings for uninsured or under-insured women between the ages of 40 and 64. The exams will take place from 8am-5pm in The Center for Breast Health, Imaging Division at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, 255 Lafayette Avenue, Suffern, NY.
The free clinical breast exam will be conducted by Dr. Karen Karsif, breast surgeon and director of The Center for Breast Health. Dr. Karsif has years of experience and expertise in treating women with breast disease.
Cancer screenings save lives, but when someone has little or no insurance they may not be able to afford screenings on their own. Thanks to a grant from the New York State Department of Health, these people can now get a free clinical breast exam, mammogram, and Pap test.
“Early detection of breast cancer is the key to beating this disease and mammography is a valuable screening tool in finding breast cancer early, when it is most treatable,” says Karsif.
Appointments can be made by calling 855.277.4482 ext. 3005 or ext. 2007. Walk-ins are also welcome.
