Every Woman Counts

The Cancer Detection Programs: Every Woman Counts  provides free clinical breast exams, mammograms, pelvic exams and Pap tests to California’s underserved women. 


 Do you qualify for a free services? You may if you: 

  • are 40 years old or older (25 years old or older for cervical)
  • have an income at or below 200% of the federal poverty
  • have medical insurance that does not cover these services
  • have a high insurance deductible or co-payment
  • are not getting these services through Medi-Cal or another government-sponsored program
  • live in California

    If you don’t qualify, the California Department of Public Health in your area may know of other low-cost screening programs that might be available to you.  They can also link you to support groups, advocacy groups, and the latest information on what’s happening in your community.

    The health educator from the California Department of Public Health Cancer Detection Section will be coming to us on Saturday, October 17, from 1 to 2:30 in the afternoon in the Union City Library’s meeting room. 

    Mark your calendar, and come to learn how you can reduce the risks for breast and cervical cancer, and access FREE screenings!  For more information, call the Reference Desk at 745-1464 ext. 7.
