Free Mammograms in Illinois Preventing Breast Cancer
Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program has been offering free mammograms, breast exams, pelvic exams and pap tests to eligible women since 1995. The program is aimed at women living in Illinois who do not have health insurance, have limited income, are between the ages of 40 and 64 (for mammograms and breast exams), or between 35-64 (for pelvic exams and Pap tests). Medical research in Illinois indicated that African-American women were 60 percent more likely to die from breast cancer than Caucasian women, despite similar rates of diagnosis. The Illinois Department of Health sponsored a print campaign to promote the mammogram and breast examination service among these women.
