BreastScreen Victoria with Bass Coast Health

Get your breasts checked with Bass Coast Health and BreastScreen Victoria
Details: Thursday 20 and Tuesday 25 October
Get your breasts checked and protect yourself against breast cancer. Put your health centre stage by getting a free breast screen every two years from age 50. Regular breast screens are the best way to find breast cancer early when treatment is most likely to be successful.
Bass Coast Health are coordinating two group bookings for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members at Wonthaggi BreastScreen located at Wonthaggi Hospital, Graham Street, Wonthaggi.
With clinics and a mobile screening service across Victoria, you can get your free breast screens in a culturally safe environment with a female radiographer. It will only take 10 minutes.
As part of the Beautiful Shawl Project, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women will receive a FREE beautiful shawl designed by talented Community artists to use during the screening that they can keep afterwards.
