BreastScreen Victoria with Goranwarrabul House
November 17, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:20 pm
Get your breasts checked with Goranwarrabul House and BreastScreen Victoria
Details: Thursday 17 November
Get your breasts checked and protect yourself against breast cancer. Put your health first by getting a free breast screen every two years from age 40 for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. Regular breast screens are the best way to find breast cancer early when treatment is most likely to be successful.
Goranwarrabul House are coordinating bookings for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community members to attend the BreastScreen Victoria’s mobile breast screen van which will be located at the Woolworths Seymour car park.
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 Taungurung artist, Aunty Joanne Honeysett to use during the screening that they can keep afterwards.
