To find department locations that offer primary care, visit their websites to see if any of the programs will fit your needs, including access to mammograms.
Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (BCCEDP) - The Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (BCCEDP) makes it easy to get the breast and cervical cancer screenings that doctors recommend. The screenings are free or low cost if you meet program eligibility requirements. There are many BCCEDP sites located throughout Florida.
