WomanCare: A Lifespan Breast and Cervical Cancer Outreach, Education and Screening Program
Your health matters. One of the best ways to stay healthy is to have preventive screenings for breast cancer and cervical cancer.
On Saturday, January 20, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Rhode Island Hospital Ambulatory Patient Center (APC) building, the Lifespan Cancer Institute and Lifespan Community Health Institute are hosting a special breast and cervical cancer screening program for women aged 21 and older. No medical insurance is required.

What to Expect at Your Screening Appointment
Screenings will begin at 8 a.m. During your visit, you can receive a pelvic exam, Pap test, clinical breast exam, and screening mammogram. Most results will be available on the same day and arrangements for follow-up care will be provided, as needed. You will also receive health education from community partners and information to take home to help you stay in your best health.
Given the number of screenings available, participants should plan on staying until 3:30 p.m. Transportation assistance, language interpretation, childcare, lunch, and parking will be available at no charge.
Volunteers are essential to provide these women with the healthcare they need. Parking, lunch, and refreshments will be provided. We have opportunities for residents, medical students and professionals, and non-medical students and professionals.
