Mammograms are important for women. This is the message that the Taylorville Memorial Hospital and other hospitals and clinics are trying to promote. One way that they are doing that is by giving away free mammograms to underinsured and no insured people. Mary Jo Coady, says that while some hospitals are giving away free mammograms only on Monday, TMH is doing them Monday through Friday.
TMH is not the only hospital doing free mammograms though.
TMH Auxiliary also has a lot that they do to promote Mammogram Mondays. Raedena Ryan who is with the Auxiliary explains there help with the program and the CUPS program.
Mary Jo Coady and Raedena Ryan were guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
