Free mammograms are offered regularly at Project Self-Sufficiency to uninsured and underinsured women over the age of 40 who reside in Sussex County, thanks to the support of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® North Jersey Affiliate.
The next date for free mammograms is Thursday, January 30, 2014.
To conduct the tests, two technicians with a state-of-the-art mammography machine set up shop at the agency's Community Education Center. Women are examined discreetly and their test results are made available within days. Hundreds of women have been able to receive a mammogram through the program at Project Self-Sufficiency.
To schedule a free mammogram, call 973-940-3500.
