There are approximately five appointment slots left for the mammography screening.  To schedule an appointment, please contact Tracie Tallant at 6580. 

Health and Safety is offering mammography screening on the quad of the Central Campus, Monday, November 4, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. The screening will be conducted by Metrolina Outreach Mammography and is intended for women age 35 and older. CPCC's insurance is accepted and will be filed for you and the results sent to up to three doctors!

Please check with your insurance provider, in advance, to ensure you are eligible to receive a mammogram. 

If you are a woman between 35-39 years old, the insurance will pay for a mammogram once every three years; women from 40-49, insurance will pay for a mammogram once every two years; and women over 50 can receive a mammogram once a year. Remember the three steps for early detection: 

> Monthly breast exams 
> Yearly clinical exam by a medical practitioner 
> Mammography on a regular basis once you are age-eligible
