On-Site Digital Mammography

Friday, Dec. 9

8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., Shirk Center parking lot
Registration required by Thursday, Dec. 1

 

A routine exam by a health professional, plus monthly self-exams and mammograms at the appropriate intervals for your age, are good ways to check the health of your breasts and to detect problems early. The earlier a problem is detected, the more easily and successfully it can be treated.


Women's Health at Unity Point-Methodist Medical Center has come to Illinois Wesleyan's campus for almost two decades offering a convenient screening program, and will be back again this year to offer On-Site Digital Mammography. The service includes the screening and radiology report, which is then sent to your personal physician for evaluation.


As an individual participating in the IWU Health Plan, the cost of the mammography will be processed through the plan at no cost to you. Please bring your BAS card.


A physician's referral is required to participate in this service if you are under the age of 40. This is a routine mammogram screening only. If you are experiencing current changes or problems with your breasts, please consult your physician immediately. 

 

For more information, or to make an appointment, please call Wellness at 556-3334.
