Experts with the Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center recognize the important role mammograms play in the early detection of breast cancer, together with regular self exams and an annual physical exam performed by a trained professional. We encourage all women to begin regular mammography screenings starting at age 40.
Women at higher risk for breast cancer may be advised to begin at a younger age. Understanding your risk of breast cancer is another important component of prevention and early detection. To help women understand their risk, UConn offers a Cancer Prevention Program for Women.
Mammography at Your Convenience
State-of-the-art mammography services are available through UConn Health’s Department of Diagnostic Imaging and Therapeutics, conveniently located on the main floor of UConn John Dempsey Hospital at 263 Farmington Avenue in Farmington. To accommodate your needs, early morning and evening appointments are available.
Help for Women with Little or No Insurance
The Charlotte Johnson Hollfelder Foundation covers the cost of mammograms for women with little or no health insurance. Since 1996, the Foundation has helped hundreds of Connecticut women get access to mammography.
Along with providing free mammograms for women who could not otherwise afford them, the Foundation also supports education programs on breast cancer and provides educational materials to women who undergo breast surgery.
To receive assistance, mention the Hollfelder Foundation at the time of scheduling your mammogram appointment.
