The Brooklyn TEAL Community Center is giving women ages 40 to 79 free mammograms regardless of whether or not they have insurance. TEAL stands for Tell Every Amazing Lady.
Myriad Genetics is also giving free genetic assessments.
Other breast cancer awareness events and free mammogram screenings are taking place throughout October, which marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
