What: Kern Medical is hosting a free breast cancer screening event. Every woman who comes to Kern Medical’s main campus will receive an exam from a medical provider. Anyone with a finding that is considered suspicious will be referred for further testing. Women between ages 45 and 54 should get a mammogram every year. After age 55, the recommendation changes to once every two years. However, the recommendations change for women who fall into the category of above average or high risk for breast cancer. No woman should skip testing for an economic or immigration concern.
