SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) - An annual free mammogram screening program for uninsured and underinsured Detroit-area women has been extended to two weeks.

The UAW-Ford says screenings will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 16-28 at Northland Radiology in Southfield in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Screenings are confidential and will be offered by appointment only. Northland Radiology will provide complimentary shuttle transportation for women who have arranged appointments.

UAW-Ford is a collaboration between United Auto Workers members and Dearborn-based Ford Motor Co.

UAW-Ford Vice President Jimmy Settles says “UAW-Ford is proud to do its part in offering this vital resource to women, whom otherwise would be unable to afford the service.”
