Open Cities Health Center (OCHC) is holding a breast cancer screening event on Tuesday, February 19, from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the clinic’s Midway location at 409 North Dunlap Street in St. Paul. 

The goal of screening exams for early breast cancer detection is to find cancers before they start to cause symptoms. Screening refers to the tests and exams used to find a disease.

“We want women to feel comfortable coming in for the screening,” said OCHC Health Navigator Pa Vang. “This is an opportunity for women to come together and feel good about taking care of themselves while they are receiving valuable education and screenings.”

Light refreshments will be served throughout the day and each participant will receive a small gift. Sponsors of the event are OCHC, the American Cancer Society, CDI Breast Care, and the Minnesota Department of Health Sage program.

The event is open to all women 40 years and older. Call Vang at (651) 290-9214 for more information and to make an appointment to reserve your screening. Space is limited so call early!
