CINCINNATI -- TriHealth is offering no cost mammograms for women in need during their second year of Hope for the Holidays.

The mammograms will take about 30 minutes and take place on TriHealth’s Women’s Services Van.

The free mammograms are funded by the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Women over 40-years-old with no Medicare, Medicaid, or insurance qualify for the free service. Insurance will be billed for those who have coverage.

“Faith, Love and Hope, three words that we most often see associated with breast cancer awareness. With the TriHealth mission, to improve the health status of the people we serve the TriHealth Women’s Services Van is trying to do our part in spreading a little faith, love, and hope this holiday season with the second annual Hope for the Holidays,” said Nyota Stoker, Supervisor of TriHealth’s mobile mammography program. “We Hope that by providing no-cost mammograms to women in need, who otherwise would not receive a mammogram, that we are able to lighten the burden on a few families, who may be more concerned about making ends meet rather than their own health.”

The TriHealth Women’s Services Van will be providing no cost mammograms at the following times:

Wednesday, December 4, 9 a.m.–1 p.m.
