An Indiana hospital is offering free screenings in an effort to promote breast cancer awareness.
Dearborn County Hospital's Breast Care Center is offering free digital screening mammograms as part of its 'Pink Days' program. The free screenings are scheduled for February 1st at the DCH Breast Care Center.
