Every Woman's Life Program Breast Cancer Screening
Prince George County Health Department
Who We Are
Prince George County Health Department offers a wide variety of services and programs to residents of Prince George County. Health departments in Rappahannock Health District participate in the Every Woman's Life (EWL) program, a public health program that helps uninsured, low income women gain access to free breast cancer screening services. Screening and early detection reduce death rates and improve treatment options.
Mammography is an important preventive health procedure for women. For early detection of breast cancer, the best option is regular screening mammograms for women over the age of 40. In some sites where EWL services are offered, women can also be screened for high blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose and also learn how to become more physically active, eat healthier foods, and more.
