Kent State’s Women’s Center Brings Awareness to Breast Cancer

Posted Apr. 7, 2014

The Kent State University Women’s Center will offer mammogram screenings to qualified Kent State employees, spouses and students on April 9, 10 and 11.

Mammograms take approximately 12 minutes and will be provided in Tiffany Breast Care Center’s mobile mammography unit. The van will be located on the Kent Campus in front of the Women’s Center. Participants’ health insurance will be billed or participants may self-pay.

The American Cancer Society recommends that women receive an annual mammogram beginning at age 40. On average, mammography will detect 80 to 90 percent of the breast cancers in women without symptoms.

Although the April 3 registration deadline has passed, the Women’s Center will schedule appointments based on availability by phone through Tuesday, April 8.

For additional information or to register, call the Women’s Center at 330-672-9230.
