The exams will be provided to the first 40 women to arrive at the participating health centers on Thursday.

Women who undergo the free exams will also have the chance to learn about a clinical trial focused on breast cancer prevention with Vitamin D, according to Contra Costa Health Services.

In addition, there will be group discussions about wellness and cancer prevention, plus healthy food samples, and recipe and cookbook giveaways.

The free services will be provided from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center in Martinez, Philip Dorn Respite Center in Concord, Pittsburg Health Center in Pittsburg, and the new West County Health Center in San Pablo.
