September 23, 2016 (San Diego) - Susan G. Komen San Diego, the County’s largest funder of free breast cancer services and support will team up with the San Diego Chargers along with Family Health Centers of San Diego, Family Medical Clinic and La Maestra to host a free mammogram event for the community. Individuals who are underinsured or uninsured are encouraged to obtain breast cancer screenings at this event.

To be eligible for a free screening at this event, you must have had your last mammogram a least one full year ago (365 days ago or longer). If it hasn’t been a full year since your last mammogram and you need assistance, please dial 2-1-1 to speak to a Komen breast health specialist who can direct you appropriately. All participants will also receive a primary medical placement and be linked to a medical home, which is important for following up each year. Additional breast health information will also be available.

The event will be held in Club Lounge 5 at Qualcomm Stadium (Gate B) on September 28 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  It is free to qualified women.  For further information and to inquire about qualifying, please call (619) 508-8088.  For more information on where you can get mammograms, visit www.komensandiego.org.
