UCF Panhellenic to offer mammogram screening for women
UCF Panhellenic has partnered with Florida Hospital for Women's Mobile Wellness to offer a day of mammogram screenings at UCF.
A mammogram bus will be at 4100 Greek Park Drive Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and women in the UCF community are encouraged to get checked.
"This is really a way for Panhellenic to give back to faculty, staff, administrators, alumni and people in our community — women in our community," UCF Panhellenic President Meghan Kircher said.
No prescription is required to get screened, according to a press release. Most insurances are accepted, and the uninsured rate is $35.
The release also states that screening mammograms are performed on women 40 and older, and a physician script is required for those younger than 40.
This event is a first of its kind at UCF and is part of UCF Panhellenic's campaign for the semester called Women Helping Women.
During the month of September, speakers and events were held to spread awareness for sexual assault and help women at UCF know what resources are available to them about this topic.
Kircher said the campaign is continuing with the mammogram screening bus to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month.
As suggested, but not required, interested women can call 407-303-1615 to make an appointment.
