Free Screenings

Florida Department of Health in Broward

Qualified women up to age 65 with little or no health insurance can get a free mammogram in
observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
The Florida Department of Health in Broward County (DOH-Broward) and its partners at
health care providers across the community are teaming up to offer the free service.
Free screenings will be provided to women up to age 65 who do not have coverage for the
tests. They can also receive free clinical breast exams and breast health information.
Women ages 50 to 64 without coverage will be screened by DOH-Broward’s Florida Breast
and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. The program uses many partner agencies
around Broward to provide the free tests.
Qualified women under age 50 will be connected to other agencies that offer free
mammograms, funded by grants from organizations such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure
Foundation.
