Free or Low-Cost Mammograms offered in several Arkansas counties thanks to Witness Project at UAMS

Free or low-cost mammograms will be offered to women age 40 and older in four Arkansas counties during December. The mammograms are made possible by The Witness Project, a community-based cancer education program of the Arkansas Cancer Research Center at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). Pre-registration is required; call (800) 275-1183 to find out the qualification requirements and to schedule an appointment. Mammograms will be available in the following counties: Phillips County Marvell Tuesday, Dec. 2 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Boys, Girls, Adults Community Development Center Highway 49 S. Lee County Marianna Tuesday, Dec. 2 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Lee County Cooperative Clinic 530 Atkins Blvd. Desha County Rohwer Saturday, Dec. 6 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Watson School 189 Delta Lane Arkansas County DeWitt Saturday, Dec. 13; 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas 1210 Rice Belt Ave. The Witness Project promotes awareness of mammography among African-American women and medically underserved women. African-American women who are breast or cervical cancer survivors serve as role models and “witness” at churches and civic groups about their triumphs over cancer. Through this program, more women – particularly in the rural parts of Arkansas – are becoming better informed about early detection in the fight against breast and cervical cancer. For more information about the program, or to learn how you can become a volunteer, write to the Arkansas Cancer Research Center, 4301 West Markham, # 629-A, Little Rock, Arkansas 72205; or call (800) 275-1183.
