Free mammograms program extended through November

| November 11, 2021

Several business and healthcare organizations are offering free mammograms at Genesis HealthCare System to those who can’t afford one due to lack of insurance, being under-insured or not having the ability to pay. Originally planned to conclude Oct. 31, the program has been extended through Nov. 30.

Vouchers for free mammograms are available at Coconis Furniture locations and the Genesis Cancer Care Center for community members to pick up. Patients call Genesis Central Scheduling at 740-454-4242 to schedule their mammogram to be conducted at the Genesis HealthPlex by the end of 2021, free of charge.

Coconis Furniture, WHIZ TV, Genesis HealthCare System, Muskingum County Community Foundation, Southeastern Ohio Breast and Cervical Cancer Project, and Riverside Radiology and Interventional Associates are the organizations collaborating to provide this essential breast cancer screening for those in need.
