The Edgecombe Breast Health Initiative is a collaborative effort between the Edgecombe County Health Department, Heritage Hospital, Tarboro Women’s Center, Tarboro Clinic, Macclesfield Health Care Center, and Eastern Radiology. Our initiative provides culturally sensitive prevention and early detection education, baseline/screening mammograms, and advanced screening to underinsured and uninsured women in Edgecombe County, who are high-risk, symptomatic, and/or have a personal or family history of breast cancer. It is the vision of the Edgecombe Breast Health Initiative to increase awareness of breast health, and increase the number of women receiving clinical breast exams and mammograms.

Breast Health Education sessions are available upon request. To schedule a community education session call 252-641-7511. To find out if you are eligible to receive a free mammogram, please call 252-641-7511.
