In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 10 Sutter Imaging locations in the greater Sacramento region are offering free mammograms to uninsured women during October.

Each of the 10 Sutter Imaging sites that are participating have set aside one Saturday this month to perform the free digital screening mammograms for uninsured women who otherwise may not have access to these potentially life-saving screenings.

“Early detection can lead to a longer, healthier life,” said Barbara White, M.D., Sutter Imaging radiologist who specializes in women’s imaging. “Unfortunately, some women view mammograms as ‘optional,’ especially those without insurance. We want to help create better access for them and put them on a path toward wellness.”

Sutter’s Free Mammography Day began at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital in 2009 and 2010, where about 70 uninsured women were given free mammograms. Inspired by the feedback and success of the program, Sutter Imaging has expanded it to additional locations each year.

When the free mammogram program discovers abnormal results, it connects the women with community agencies that provide follow-up care.

Here are the dates and locations of the free mammogram sessions. An appointment is required, and space is limited. To sign up, contact the Sutter Imaging location you want to attend directly at the number provided.
