YWCA Healthy Connections 

YWCA Healthy Connections encompasses two major programs: YWCA Breast Cancer Awareness and Early Detection Program and The Infant Vitality Awareness Program.

Our Breast Cancer Awareness & Early Detection Program targets women over the age of 40 who are under-served by providing them with education and free screening services for breast cancer. We have provided education to over 50,000 women and 12,500 women have received clinical screening service. See our events page to find out when the next Mammogram Day will be hosted, or connect with us to collaborate on a Healthy Connections event in the community.

What does Healthy Connections offer?

Annual YWCA Community Health Fair
This health fair held every August, is designed to provide our community with valuable resources, health screenings, and educational opportunities. Here, you’ll find vendors, raffles, giveaways, and a wealth of information. Whether you want to learn more about wellness, healthcare options, or support services, this is the perfect place to explore and connect!

Mammogram Days
We provide mammograms to community members in need at low or no cost during our mammogram days, hosted quarterly. Mercy Mammography Van has collaborated with us to provide this service to our community. Check our events page for upcoming Mammogram Days!
