On Friday, November 13th, a mobile mammography van will be available at Project Self-Sufficiency to offer free mammograms to eligible women. To receive a free mammogram, women must reside in Sussex or Northern Warren Counties, be uninsured or underinsured, and over the age of 40.
Some income eligibility restrictions apply. Mammograms will be offered by appointment only, between the hours of 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The free mammograms will be offered with funding from the New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJ CEED) Program. The NJCEED Program, with support from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the State of New Jersey, provides funding to all twenty-one counties in the State for comprehensive breast, cervical, prostate, and colorectal cancer education, outreach, and screening.
Men and women whose income is under 250% of the Federal poverty level and have no insurance are eligible for the program.
Project Self-Sufficiency is located at 127 Mill Street in Newton. Interested participants are encouraged to call Project Self-Sufficiency at 973-940-3500 to schedule an appointment.
