Fulton County Regional Health Centers Offer Clinical Breast, Cervical Screenings Year-Round | Print |

Although October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Fulton County’s efforts to help women learn about breast health and the importance of early detection are year-round.   Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths for women in the United States and in Georgia.

 

The Fulton County Department of Health and Wellness (FCDHW) wants to inform women that in addition to doing their monthly self-breast exams, women should also have an annual clinical breast exam performed by their healthcare provider.   Fulton County’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Program offers both breast and cervical exams not just during October but throughout the year.   These life-saving exams are available FREE to uninsured women who are income-eligible.   Women must schedule an appointment for their exams by contacting one of the designated regional health centers.

Fulton County Health Centers that Offer Breast & Cervical Cancer Screenings include:

  • Adamsville Regional Health Center, 3700 Martin Luther King Dr. S.W., Atlanta, GA   30331.  Phone:   404-613-4215.
  • •College Park Regional Health Center, 1920 John Wesley Ave, College Park, GA   30337.  Phone:   404-613-8865.
  • •North Fulton Regional Health Center, 3155 Royal Drive, Suite 125, Alpharetta, GA   30022.    Phone:   404-332-1958.

Fulton County’s Breast and Cervical Program provides breast and cervical cancer screenings, diagnostic services and referrals as medically indicated.   “The program strives to increase public awareness of early detection to increase survival,” explains Debra Dewitt, Nursing Supervisor, FCDHW.

 “Fulton County has enrolled over 10,300 uninsured women between 1995 – 2015 into its National Breast and Cervical Cancer Program who received mammogram screenings and/or diagnostic procedures to complete their treatment,” Dewitt further explains.    

Fulton’s BCCP receives its funding, in part, from the Georgia Department of Public Health. The program has partnered with the S.C.L.C. WOMEN, Inc., and Congressman David Scott’s Annual Health Fair to offer clinical breast examinations at nontraditional sites for women who rarely or never receive mammograms.
