IU School of Medicine provides free breast and cervical cancer screenings



Indianapolis, Indiana – In order to give women free HIV tests, breast and cervical cancer screenings, and other related services, the Indiana University School of Medicine and Gennesaret Free Clinics have joined forces.

The St. Vincent De Paul Food Pantry at 3001 E. 30th St. is hosting the See, Test, and Treat Healthcare Resource Fair through 5 p.m. on Monday. To schedule an appointment, women should dial 1-800-696-1511.

The See, Test, and Treat program’s chief pathologist, Dr. Gail Vance, joined Daybreak Monday to discuss the occasion’s purpose.

“It’s mainly addressed to women who are either uninsured or underinsured,” Vance said.

Patients will receive test results from doctors the same day, and Spanish-speaking interpreters are accessible.
