CAMBRIDGE -- In honor of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Southeastern Med reminds local women that the best way to detect breast cancer early is through a mammogram, and the hospital's Power Me Pink program ensures that women who are uninsured and underinsured have access to free mammography screening services.

Through a grant from the Columbus Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Southeastern Med's Power Me Pink program provides women who are uninsured and underinsured with breast health education, clinical breast exams, mammograms and additional testing if necessary.

The program serves women 35 years and older who earn between 250-300 percent of the poverty level with breast health education and mammograms, as well as women younger than 35 years of age who have a family history of breast cancer.

To learn more about Southeastern Med's Power Me Pink Program or to see if you qualify for a free screening, call 740-435-2500.
