Women's Health Screening Day at HGLHC
Time: 9:00am - 2:00pm EST
Location: 1841 Broad St, Hartford, CT
Saturday, March 7, 2009
The Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective (HGLHC) is pleased to announce that it will hold its next Women’s Health Screening Day on Saturday, March 7, 2009. In collaboration with Hartford Hospital, the region’s largest and most comprehensive breast care provider, HGLHC will be offering MAMMOGRAMS. Appointments are required to receive a mammogram and all other services are provided on a walk-in basis from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm. Insurance coverage is not necessary to make an appointment for a mammogram.
Kathey Fowler, Women’s Services Coordinator, states that a day like this enables lesbian, bisexual and trans women to obtain the vital health screening and exams they may otherwise not receive. It is also a great opportunity to support our community. Kathey also noted that lesbian, bisexual, and trans women have a greater concentration of risk factors for breast cancer and that breast c ancer is most curable when detected early. “We want women in our community to have all of the information available to them about their risks for breast cancer and early detection education.”
In addition, HGLHC staff and volunteers will also provide Pap testing, breast and cervical exams, STD diagnosis and treatment, vaccination against Hepatitis A & B, screening for Hepatitis C and HIV counseling & testing. All screening services are free. Donations are always welcome.
We urge all lesbian, bisexual, and trans women to take the time for these important health measures. If you have any questions or would like to make a mammogram appointment, call the Health Collective at 860.278.4163 or by emailing email@example.com.
The Hartford Gay and Lesbian Health Collective empowers individuals of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions to lead healthy lives through the provision of health and support services, education and advocacy.
