The New Mexico Department of Health on Friday announced the launch of a new toll-free hotline number (1-833-525-1811) for breast and cervical cancer screening services and support. Managed by the Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection (BCC) program, the hotline will provide direct assistance by connecting individuals to a health care clinic that provides BCC screening services.
