Arroyo Grande Community Hospital to Provide Free Mammogram Screenings

Women who qualify can receive an exam during a Sept. 22 clinic

In recognition of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Arroyo Grande Community Hospital in collaboration with the Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo will offer a free mammogram clinic on Saturday, Sept. 22 to local women who qualify.

This special program is funded by the Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Foundation with major support provided to the AGCH Foundation by the Cypress Ridge Women’s Golf Rally for Hope Tournament.

“Arroyo Grande Community Hospital is proud to offer this opportunity in order to increase awareness and to educate women about the importance of regular mammogram screenings, clinical breast exams and early detection of breast cancer at its earliest and most treatable stages,” said Montisa Lopez, vice president of the AGCH Foundation. “This mammogram screening opportunity is one of the many hospital outreach programs and is made possible by the generosity of the Cypress Ridge Women’s Golf Club and AGCH’s collaborative partnership with CAPSLO.”

The screening clinic provides women who have limited resources with an annual mammography screening exam. Women interested in receiving a free mammogram must make an appointment for a clinical breast exam by calling the Arroyo Grande CAPSLO Health & Prevention Clinic at 805.489.4026.

At the time of the exam, women will receive a referral for a free mammogram screening for the clinic on Sept. 22 at AGCH’s Coastal Diagnostic Center.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
