Schneck offering free clinical breast exams

Schneck Family Care is offering free breast exams during an event next month. It will be held Saturday, Sept. 14, from 8 a.m. to noon, at Schneck Family Care Scott, 1366 North Gardner Street in Scottsburg.

The event is designed to provide exams for women who may not have access to these services and includes a clinical breast exam (not a mammogram). All exams will be performed by qualified nurse practitioners.

To be eligible for the free Breast Screening, a woman must be at least 21 years old and have not had a breast exam during the last 12 months. Individuals with Medicare, Medicaid, or similar replacement plans are not eligible for these screenings.

A limited number of appointments are available. To schedule your screening, call Schneck Family Care at 812-752-7444.
