In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, AMI in Fulton has extended its hours to make it even easier to receive mammograms throughout the month of October.  Thanks to the efforts of Oswego County Opportunities’ Cancer Services Program Partnership of Oswego County, women with limited or no health insurance will have a greater opportunity to receive free mammograms and breast exams during the month of October.

“We are happy to be working with AMI and offering this opportunity for women to learn about their risk and get screened for breast cancer,” said Carolyn Handville, Coordinator of OCO’s Cancer Services Program Partnership of Oswego County.  “All women 40 and over should have an annual mammogram and clinical breast exam.  Women 20 to 39 should have a clinical breast exam at least once a year.  A mammogram along with a clinical breast exam is an effective tool to detect breast cancer in its early stage and has been successful in reducing overall cancer and mortality.”

Handville said that during the month of October AMI will be extending their regular hours.

-          Monday, October 20th, and 27th from 4 – 7:30pm

-          Saturday, October 18th, and 25th by appointment.

Putting these screenings off today, could affect your life tomorrow!  Call 592-7877 ext. 228, to take advantage of these free screenings and make your appointment today!

Appointments are required.
