Mammography screening to be offered June 12Columbus State has arranged with The Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute to bring a mobile mammography screening unit to campus to screen women for breast cancer.

The mobile unit will perform these procedures on Tuesday, June 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call (614) 293-4455 to make an appointment.

To be eligible for this screening, women must be: non-pregnant, non-nursing, 12 months since their last mammogram, asymptomatic, have no breast implants, and have had no previous breast cancer. For women ages 30-34, a written prescription is needed and insurance might not cover the screening. Women under the age of 30 are not eligible.
