Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening, Every Woman's Life
Prince William Health District, Manassas Clinic
Who We Are
Prince William Health District participates in the Every Woman's Life (EWL) program, a public health program that helps uninsured, low income women gain access to free breast and cervical 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.
