First National Bank is partnering with Charles Drew Health Center, Inc. and Medical Imaging Consultants to provide free mammograms to underserved women in the Omaha area to commemorate national Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
A mobile mammography unit is providing FREE mammograms at the Charles Drew Health Center, Inc. Public Housing Health Center, located at Florence Tower, 5100 Florence Boulevard, Wednesday, October 19, 2016, 8am to 5pm. The outreach initiative is offering 20 mammograms at no cost. Twenty patients were scheduled to receive services prior to the arrival of the mammogram unit at Florence Tower.
First National Bank is committed to decreasing breast cancer incidence rates through increased awareness and access to health care. To call attention to the need for women to be screened for breast cancer, First National Bank paid for the cost of each mammogram in support of its Breast Cancer Awareness initiative and ongoing commitment to giving back to the community.
“Charles Drew Health Center, Inc. is honored to partner with First National Bank and Medical Imaging Consultants to provide this much needed service for at-risk women in our community”, said Kenny D. McMorris, CDHC Chief Executive Officer. “We know all too well the challenge that low-income women of color have in accessing this service. First National Bank is to be commended for its continued service in the North Omaha community.”
