It’s finally Breast Cancer Awareness month, which means now is the best time to schedule a mammogram appointment if you haven’t done so this year — especially if you missed screenings last year. Not only are there many free or reduced rate offerings for mammograms throughout this month, but you also get to know what’s happening in your body to be able to prevent it as soon as possible.
After you view the clip above, check out this excerpt from my interview:
“Dr. Ginde says early detection is key when it comes to any time of cancer. That’s why it’s so important for women to not put off their annual mammograms. If there are any abnormalities, the doctors can come up with a plan to help decide what steps are best to take care of your diagnosis.
Stride has great programs including their Cancer Prevention and Early Detection (CPED) program through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Individuals who meet the following eligibility criteria have access to no-cost mammography services through this grant funded program.”
