Halifax Health receives Komen grant to provide free mammograms


For a limited time, uninsured women who are residents of Volusia and Flagler counties can receive free mammograms courtesy of a grant provided by Susan G. Komen Central Florida to the Halifax Health – Center for Oncology.

“For several years, Halifax Health has been successful in obtaining funding from the Susan G. Komen Central Florida Affiliate to provide mammograms for uninsured women in Volusia and Flagler counties who would otherwise not be able to access this vitally important screening,” said Catherine McQuade, Hereditary Cancer Risk Program & Breast Health & Cancer Screening Coordinator for the Halifax Health – Center for Oncology.

To participate in this program, women must meet the following requirements:

•Must be 40-49 years of age
•Must be unable to pay for a mammogram
•Must have an order from a health care provider
•Must be a resident of Volusia or Flagler county

The Center for Oncology works with Radiology Associates Port Orange Imaging to schedule mammograms for women who meet eligibility requirements.
