FREE CLINICAL BREAST EXAMS
Please call to schedule a free clinical breast exam also offered during the health fair. A clinical breast exam is a physical examination of the breast. All exams will be performed by qualified nurse practioners. If an abnormality is suspected, a doctor will be on hand for consultation.
To be eligible for a free breast exam, women must be at least 21 years old and have not had a clinical breast exam during the last 12 months. If an abnormality is found during the screening, the Schneck Foundation has made available limited funds to assist the uninsured with follow-up diagnostic testing.
An appointment is required for the clinical breast exam. To schedule your breast screening, please call Convenient Care at 812-346-6010. Screening times are limited so please call early.
