BreastScreen Victoria with Dhauwurd-Wurrung Elderly and Community Health Service
August 21 - August 25Free
Get your breasts checked with BreastScreen Victoria and Dhauwurd-Wurrung Elderly and Community Health Service.
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 and when treatment is most likely to be successful.
The BreastScreen mobile screening van will be visiting Dhauwurd-Wurrung Elderly and Community Health Service from Monday 21 August to Friday 25 August. Your free breast screen will be done in a culturally safe environment with a female radiographer and will only take 10 minutes.
For more information and to book your screening contact Dhauwurd-Wurrung Elderly and Community Health Service on (03) 5521 7535.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women will receive a FREE beautiful shawl (below) to use during the screening that they can keep afterwards.
The artwork on this beautiful shawl is ‘Women Past & Present’ designed by talented Gunditjmara artist, Amelia Lovett.
“The two women in the middle reminding us to get a breast screen. Circles on top with dots: Women who have gone before us that have suffered from breast cancer. Circles on the bottom with dots: Women working on country.”
