Women’s Health Fair: Saturday, September 10

Sep 05, 2022

Join us this Saturday, September 10, for our Women’s Health Fair featuring the Pink Mammogram Bus, Well Woman Exams, vendors, giveaways and more! The Women’s Health Far is from 9 AM — Noon, but certain health services will run until 3 PM (details below).

Mobile Mammograms from the Pink Bus

Pink Mammography Bus

The Pink Mammography Bus from Diagnostic Imaging Centers will be on site from 10 AM — 3 PM providing mammograms and early breast cancer screenings at HealthCore Clinic. To schedule an appointment, please call 913-344-9989. Walk-ins will also be welcome during the health fair.

Breast cancer screenings check a woman’s breasts for cancer before there are signs or symptoms of the disease. Although breast cancer screening cannot prevent breast cancer, it can help find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat. Talk to your doctor about which breast cancer screening tests are right for you, and when you should have them.

Women who are 50 to 74 years old and are at average risk for breast cancer get a mammogram every two years. Women who are 40 to 49 years old should talk to their doctor or other health care professional about when to start and how often to get a mammogram. Women should weigh the benefits and risks of screening tests when deciding whether to begin getting mammograms before age 50.

What To Expect On The Pink Bus

Preparing for your mammogram on the Pink Mammography Bus:

Well-Woman Exams, Pap Smears, Pelvic Exams and Breast Exams

Well Woman Exams & Pap Smears

HealthCore Clinic will be conducting Well Woman Exams and Pap Smears at the clinic from 9 AM — 12 PM and then from 1 PM — 3 PM. To schedule an appointment, please call 316-691-0249. Walk-ins will also be welcome during the health fair.

Unlike regular physicals and doctor’s appointments, a well-woman exam is centered around the health of your vagina, cervix, uterus, and breasts. Your health will be taken into account as a whole, but the main focus of a well-woman exam is your reproductive health.

Well-woman exams usually include three things

These exams are essential as they can catch early signs of cancer or other health problems before they get out of hand. At the time of your Well Woman Exam, you can also speak with your doctor about other health concerns you may have.

What To Expect During a Well Woman Exam

When you arrive for your well-woman exam, you’ll go through the regular physical exam process of having your weight taken and your pulse and blood pressure taken. You may also be asked for a urine sample. You will be given a pelvic exam, pap smear, and breast exam. Here’s what you can expect for each one:
