FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Washington Regional is offering free clinical breast exams October 16.

The clinic will be 9 a.m. to noon at the J.B Hunt Transport Services Cancer Support Home on East Longview Street in Fayetteville.

Exams will be performed by physicians or registered nurse practitioners.

Director of Outreach services Jason Kelly of the Washington Regional Medical Foundation says the event is to help busy people in the community during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“It’s true to our mission here is trying to remove as many barriers as possible. So offering a clinic like this on a Saturday, it is at no cost at all,” Kelly said. “To remove the barrier of time, to remove the barrier of finances, that kinda checks those boxes.”
