Breast health screenings are available for Augusta University and AU Health employees, ages 40 and older, on the first Monday of every month..

Each year in the United States, more than 280,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 45,000 will die from the disease, according to the American Cancer Society. Early detection of breast cancer through screening mammography is our most important tool to prevent breast cancer deaths.

The breast cancer experts at Augusta University Health recommend yearly screening mammograms to all women 40 and older. Women at high risk should begin earlier.

Breast health screenings are available for Augusta University and AU Health employees, ages 40 and older, on the first Monday of every month.

The walk-in screenings will take place from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. the first Monday of each month at the Breast Health Center on Augusta University Medical Center’s first floor, BA-1472.

Insurance plans are required to cover the total cost of screening mammography without a co-pay or deductible, making mammograms free of charge. In addition, screening mammograms do not require a physician’s order.

Contact the Augusta University Breast Health Center at 706-721-3252 for more information.
