Schneck receives grant for mammograms

Schneck Medical Center recently received a grant to provide a limited number of free screening mammograms to low- and middle-income women in communities it serves.

A mammogram is one of the best tools for the early detection of breast cancer and life-saving early detection, according to a news release from the Seymour hospital.

To qualify for the screening mammogram, women must be 40 years or older, uninsured and meet financial requirements. Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust is providing the grant.

If you or someone you know needs a screening mammogram and does not have insurance, contact Schneck Patient Financial Services at 812-522-0413.
