Healthy Family FunFest to offer mobile mammograms

Healthy Family FunFest 2016

Healthy Family FunFest, Southington’s favorite family-centered event focused on healthy living, returns Sunday, Feb. 28 to provide people of all ages ways to connect to healthier. This free fest, to be held 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville, features health and wellness information from medical professionals, free health screenings, demonstrations, and exciting activities for every family member.

A special feature will be the mobile mammography unit provided by Hartford HealthCare. Women wishing to receive mammograms must be over 40 years old, have no current breast problems and no mammogram within the last year. An insurance card and photo ID will be requested, but funds are available to assist uninsured individuals.

A limited number of free mammograms will be provided on a first-come first-serve basis.

The Healthy Family FunFest is presented by Hartford HealthCare and the Southington-Cheshire Community YMCA.

Free transportation for seniors, provided courtesy of Mulberry Gardens of Southington will be provided beginning at 10:15 a.m. at the Calendar House, 388 Pleasant St., and 10:30 a.m. at the Spring Lake Village Social Hall, continuing every half-hour.
