Free Women's Clinic and Free Mammograms Barre Vermont


CVMC has partnered with the People's Health and Wellness Clinic to offer 12 free Women's Clinics. The first of these will be held on Tuesday May 24 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the People's Health and Wellness Clinic, 553 North Main Street in Barre. They are by appointment only; call 802-479-1229. Limited funds are available for child care.

The clinic will provide women with a physical exam, pap test, breast exam, pelvic exam, health education and referrals for specialty care. A social worker will be present to advise women about health insurance and provider assistance.

"We know that a large number of women in central Vermont have not had their recommended mammograms and we've planned a variety of activities to make a dent in this number," said Judy Tarr, CVMC president and CEO.

The Vermont Department of Health's Ladies First program also covers mammograms and follow-up care for some women. CVMC has a Patient Navigator who works with women to remove any barriers to getting the breast care they need when they need it. This generous award from Susan G. Komen for the Cure means there is no financial obstacle to central Vermont women obtaining their recommended mammograms.

Anyone needing assistance to pay for a mammogram should call Patient Navigator Theresa Lever at 802-225-5449.

A woman should have her health care provider order the mammogram before calling to schedule it. If she does not currently have a provider, she can contact the CVMC Patient Navigator to help make this arrangement. The next step is to call Diagnostic Imaging at 802-371-4249. Their staff will schedule the appointment. Some Saturday and early evening slots are available, as well as the regular hours on Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 pm.
