We Care Manatee continues to plan Breast Health events throughout the year. Our next event will be on Tues Sept 21st at Manatee Diagnostic Center. A physician’s order will be required. Anyone in need of a screening mammogram can contact our office for information. A second event is being planned at Bowes Imaging, dates to be announced.
We Care Manatee can assist with breast diagnostic testing for low-income uninsured residents of Manatee County all throughout the year due to a generous grant from Sarasota Breast Health. Studies show that many women have deferred routine testing during the pandemic. Routine mammograms save lives.
Finally, as the new Delta variant of Covid-19 takes hold in Manatee County, I encourage all who have delayed getting vaccinated to take advantage of the free vaccination sites available in Manatee County. For young people who are not eligible for vaccination, please continue to practice safe habits at home like washing hands and wearing a mask in public places. If you have questions about breast health services or vaccine locations near you, please contact our office at 941-755-3952.
