IA Dept. of Public Health & Am. Cancer Soc. join to help breast screenings

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa Department of Public Health is teaming up with the American Cancer Society on a project to find ways to improve breast cancer screenings in the state.

The Iowa Cancer Consortium and the other agencies will form focus groups in the northeast and eastern parts of the state.

The project is looking for adult women in Iowa who are between ages 40 and 64, who have had a mammogram but have not been rescreened for at least five years, or women who have never had a mammogram. The women must also have health insurance.

The focus groups will meet Aug. 1 in Osage; Aug. 2 in Mason City; Aug. 3 in Davenport and Aug. 4 in Maquoketa.

If you'd like more information on participating in the study call 319-335-4931 by July 29.
