(Austin, Texas) - East Texas Health Access Network (ETHAN) will offer free mammograms to eligible women on February 24 & 25 from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm, at First Baptist Church of Woodville. "In order for Southeast Texas to grow its economy and local prosperity, we need healthy citizens in Hardin, Jasper, Newton, Polk, and Tyler counties," said Rep. White.
Please schedule your appointment now with Ava Whitener at (409) 384-2099 or by email at Ava.Whitener@EthanRcsources.org.
All women over the age of 40 are strongly encouraged to receive a mammogram every 1-2 years to identify early signs of breast cancer. Discovering signs of breast cancer at the very early stages can aid in treatment and prevent the spread of the disease.
State Representative James White is proud to represent House District 19 and deeply thankful for ETHAN in enhancing the health and wellness of Southeast Texas women.
