Breast Cancer Awareness

University Hospitals Geneva Medical Center Promotes Breast Cancer Awareness

According to recent statistics from the National Cancer Institute, 1 in 8 women now born in the United States will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives. University Hospitals Geneva Medical Center is committed to providing state-of-the-art breast cancer care and support for patients and their family members affected by the disease.

Advanced Mammogram Technology

UH Geneva Medical Center provides advanced digital mammography for accurate breast cancer detection and treatment. Unlike traditional mammograms, digital mammography produces highly detailed pictures that enable doctors to magnify images, and shift contrast and color. Radiologists use this technology to detect slight changes in breast tissue, which facilitates earlier treatment. The digital system also enables medical team members to share images and consult with physicians in multiple locations.

Free Mammogram Clinic

UH Geneva Medical Center offers clinical breast examinations and screening mammograms for uninsured women ages 40 to 64 who reside in Ashtabula and Lake counties and meet financial qualifications (courtesy of the Komen Grant). Since 2003, the clinic's staff has successfully detected multiple breast cancer cases – all with successful outcomes. Learn more about our free free mammogram clinic or call 440-998-0695 to inquire about a no-cost screening mammogram or to receive more information regarding our services.

Breast Health Education

To promote breast cancer awareness, UH Geneva Medical Center offers breast health education and instruction on breast self-examination to community groups and local schools. Nationally certified nurses from the community outreach team visit high school throughout Ashtabula Country to inform the students regarding breast health care. To request a presentation on this vital issue, the public may call 440-998-0680.

Events to Support Survivors

For the past eight years, UH Geneva Medical Center and University Hospitals Conneaut Medical Center have sponsored the annual Two-Mile Walk for the Cure™ to benefit the Northeast Ohio Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and to increase breast cancer awareness.

University Hospitals also supports the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series, which raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
