The Center's educational initiative is deeply rooted in our community. Yearly mammograms are covered by Medicare and most insurance companies.
Our Breast Health Specialists are experienced registered nurses, offering one-on-one patient education. In addition to instruction on breast self-examination, they provide teaching and support before and after surgery, as well as genetic counseling and testing.
Trained speakers are available for civic, church, business and employee groups by calling 706/774-4141. Topics range from proper techniques in breast self-examination to the value of including prevention and early detection in an employee wellness program.
A lending library offers books on breast health, pamphlets from the American Cancer Society and other organizations, and access to pre-approved health care Web sites.
University also hosts breast health classes and support groups to help you learn more about breast cancer.
