Commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This year we will again bring breast cancer awareness into the “Walking Among Us ~ Now & Forever” event, by also remembering victims of this disease and by offering clinical breast exams during the event. The goal is to illustrate the intersection among both issues affecting women.

In order to receive the screening services participants have to be women over 40 UNLESS they are experiencing symptoms; they must be uninsured, must live in Georgia and meet income requirements. Northside Hospital will also offer follow up screening upon medical recommendation after the exams.

To schedule a breast screening appointment please contact us at 678-363-3079. We have limited spaces available for breast exams, pre-registration is required.

Call us at 678-363-3079 or email maraya@serfam.org to register for a Clinical Breast Exam (limited spaces available)
