Opelousas General Health System is offering free Mammograms to women who qualify. This service is being sponsored through a $30,000 grant from the Acadiana Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. To qualify for a free mammogram, women must meet 3 of the following requirements: be between the ages of 40 and 64, have a family history of breast cancer, have an existing breast health issue, have no insurance, or underinsured and meet income eligibility guidelines based on the size of your family. For more information on the program, call Carol Duplechain, Community Outreach Coordinator at OGHS at 948-5157.
