ScreenABLE Saturday

ScreenABLE Saturday is a celebration of wellness for women with disabilities that is hosted every year by the Program for Healthcare Justice. We have hosted ScreenABLE Saturday every year since 2016.

Women with disabilities participate in breast cancer screening less than their nondisabled peers. ScreenABLE Saturday addresses this disparity by partnering up with the University of Illinois Cancer Center to provide free, accessible mammograms for women with disabilities.

ScreenABLE Saturday is an interactive and fun health fair that has included:

  • Breast health education
  • Adapted yoga and exercise
  • Healthy and affordable cooking demonstrations
  • Free manicures
  • Stress management booths
  • Gardening
  • Adapted karate
  • Mindfulness
