Blood Pressure Screenings
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force applied to the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood through the body. The pressure is determined by the force and amount of blood pumped, and the size and flexibility of the arteries.
Blood pressure is continually changing depending on activity, temperature, diet, emotional state, physical state, and medication use.
High blood pressure (also referred to as HBP, or hypertension) is when your blood pressure, the force of blood flowing through your blood vessels, is consistently too high.
Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening
Offering Early Detection
A free breast and cervical cancer screening program for WV women between the ages of 25-64 who do not have insurance or have health insurance that does not cover screenings. Services are offered by appointment only with a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. This program covers:
- Mammograms (ages 50-64)
- Pap Smears
- Pelvic Exams
- Breast Exams
- Education on risk factors of breast and cervical cancer and how to perform a self-breast exam at home.
Referrals will be provided for further diagnosis on all abnormal clinical breast exams for anyone between the ages of 25 – 49.
Routine periodic screening encourages early identification of precancerous conditions of the cervix and early-stage diagnosis of cervical cancer. Most cervical cancers CAN be prevented with detection and early treatment of precancerous lesions. Monthly breast self-exams, annual clinical breast exam, and regular mammography screenings aid in the early diagnosis of breast cancer.
