Preventative Mammogram Screening Event Registration

August 29, 2023 - September 9, 2023

In an effort to increase mammogram screenings, and awareness, PNW, in conjunction with Franciscan Health, is providing no-cost screening mammograms to benefits-eligible employees and their covered spouses.

Purdue’s health plans, administered by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, cover preventive (nondiagnostic) screening mammograms for females ages 41 to 70. Those age 40 or under should talk to their provider about when to start and how often to get a screening mammogram.

To review eligibility requirements, and to schedule an appointment with Franciscan Health, visit Employee Wellness’s webpage. No individual participant information will be shared with PNW.

  • Mammogram appointments need to be scheduled by Friday, September 8, 2023.
  • Mammogram screening appointment dates are October 2, 2023 to October 13, 2023 at the following locations:
    • Franciscan Health Dyer, 24 Joliet Street, Dyer
    • Franciscan Health Cancer Center, Munster, 701 Superior Drive, Munster
    • Franciscan Health Michigan City, 3500 Franciscan way, Michigan City
    • Franciscan Health Women’s Center, 770 Indiana Boundary Road, Chesterton
    • Franciscan Health Breast Care Center, 1201 South Main Street, Crown Point

During this campaign, employees will be provided up to 90 minutes of paid time off (with supervisor approval) during their regularly scheduled shift, to allow for travel to a designated location, screening time, and travel back to campus.  The employee does not need to make up the paid time off.

Earn Healthy Boiler Incentive Dollars

As a reminder, mammograms are included in the 2023 Healthy Boiler incentive as one of the optional well-being screenings in step 2. Therefore, those who get their mammogram screening – either through this campaign or at another time in 2023 – and log completion into the Healthy Boiler portal, are eligible for additional incentive dollars. More information on how to earn incentives via the Healthy Boiler Program is available here.

To request a disability-related accommodation, please contact the Office of Institutional Equity at oie@pnw.edu or (219) 989-2163 five days prior to the event.
