Women's Health Screenings

PORTSMOUTH – If you have a mother, daughter, wife, girlfriend, sister or friend who is uninsured or underinsured, ask her if she is up-to-date on her screenings for breast and cervical cancer. If not, Families First Health and Support Center, the Seacoast’s community health center, will offer free breast and cervical cancer screenings for eligible women on the evening of Thurs., February 27. The screenings will include Pap smears and breast exams, with referrals for free mammograms.

To be eligible for these screenings, women must be 40 or older; be uninsured or have health insurance with a high deductible; and meet household income guidelines –for example, an annual income of no more than $27,925 for a single woman. Women younger than 40 who haven’t had a Pap smear in more than three years are also eligible.

Space is limited, and appointments are needed. To make an appointment, or to ask to be notified about future screenings, call Jane Cummings, RN, at 603-422-8208 ext. 222.

Physician Kareen Worrell, DO, is volunteering her services to provide the screenings. Other support for this program comes from the State of New Hampshire’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program, the Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and the Abenaqui Women’s League.

Families First is a nonprofit agency offering a wide variety of free or affordable health care and family support services to individuals and families, regardless of ability to pay. For more information, call 603-422-8208 or visit www.FamiliesFirstSeacoast.org.
