It is estimated that over 220,000 women will be diagnosed with new cases

of invasive breast cancer in 2013. In addition, over 40,000 women will die

of this disease this year as well. This emphasizes the importance of early

detection and screening.

RaeAnn Tucker-Marshall, Health Department Public Information Director,

would like to encourage women to partner with a friend or family member to

remind each other to practice monthly breast self-exam and make annual

clinical exam and mammogram appointments.

The Health Department reminds area residents that their clinical

services program provides annual physical exams to area women, including a

breast exam and pap smear.

The clinic accepts medicaid payments and private pay. A sliding fee

scale, based on the client's income, has been established to assist

residents to obtain services.

In addition the Health Department is always available for breast cancer

prevention educational presentations for your group or organization.

852-0197 (Henry) or 852-3115 (Stark) or visit our website at

Health Departments.
