The South Dakota Department of Health is concerned that many older women are not getting important medical screenings that can have an impact on their lives well into later life.

"At the Department of Health we're concerned that older women, especially those who feel they cannot afford checkups and screenings, are not getting the attention they need at an important point in their lives," said Dr. Gail Gray, Director of Health and Medical Services for the Department of Health. "We're reaching out to tell women, that if they are not going to the doctor because they can't afford it, we have a program that can help."
