Muffins for Mammograms
What is MUFFINS FOR MAMMOGRAMS?
Since 1992, Akron General and Main Street Gourmet have teamed up to host Muffins for Mammograms – an annual program which distributes breast health information along with muffins. The proceeds provide screening mammograms at no cost to men and women who are uninsured.
Who qualifies for a free mammogram?
There is no age limit for qualification. However, you must meet the following guidelines to qualify for one free screening mammogram a year through the Muffins for Mammograms program:
· You must have a primary care physician to whom the results can be sent.
· You must have a written order from your primary care physician.
· No form of insurance coverage.
· Be scheduled at one of the Akron General Reflections Breast Health Center facilities.
If you do not have a primary care physician, call Akron General’s Need-A-Physician at 330.344.AGMC (2462) for a referral.
