April 2015 - LMAS District Health Dept.

The best defense against breast and cervical cancer is early detection and treatment.
Access to these services may be difficult for low-income women who have limited or no
health insurance.
The Michigan Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP), through the LMAS
District Health Department, provides FREE BREAST AND CERVICAL CANCER SCREENINGS, including assistance with follow-up services for low-income women, between the
ages of 40 to 64, with no insurance or limited health insurance meeting income guidelines. Contact your local LMAS District Health Department Office today to see if you
qualify for the BCCCP and make breast and cervical cancer screenings part of your overall health care routine.
