During this episode of Well Well Well, guest Ashleigh Sternes (Diversity and Inclusion Project Manager) from BreastScreen Victoria (BSV) comes on the show to talk about free breast and chest screening.

We chat about Rainbow Tick and the changes BSV have made in working toward LGBTI-inclusive practice. During the show, we also discuss risk factors and things to be aware of for trans men and trans women in relation to breast and chest cancer screening.

For information about screening and eligibility please see the BSV Screening FAQ for LGBTI people and Breast/chest screening for trans and gender diverse people fact sheet.
