FAIRFIELD — Sutter Health is offering free digital screening mammograms to uninsured women 40 years or older.
The screening is from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Oct. 26 at Sutter Fairfield Imaging, 2700 Low Court, Fairfield. Women will receive their results within several days. Sutter Fairfield Imaging will connect women with abnormal results to local nonprofits who can follow up on the screening.
Space is limited. To register, call 432-2500.
Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital spearheaded Free Mammography Days in 2009. In two years about 70 uninsured women were given free mammograms. Sutter Diagnostic Imaging expanded the program to its other locations, which included Fairfield and Vallejo in 2012. Sutter gave 358 uninsured women free digital screening mammograms last year.
