Guam - Just as they did during cervical health month earlier this year, the Guam Regional Medical City is once again providing incentives for women - this time for those who get their first mammogram. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in an effort to encourage women to get screened, GRMC will provide a $25 gas coupon to any woman from the age of 40 to 64 who gets her first mammogram. The island's new hospital is slated to open before the end of the year and is teaming up with the American Cancer Society to raise awareness about the importance of screening for breast cancer. The way to qualify is to simply schedule a mammography between October 1 to December 31 at either FHP Health Center, Guam Radiology Consultants or PMC and answer a short questionnaire and get your gas coupon. If you're not insured, you can call Public Health's Breast Cancer and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program at 735-0671 or 2 and you may also qualify for a free breast cancer screening including a mammogram.
