The SEARHC WISEWOMAN Women’s Health Program and Bartlett Regional Hospital recently announced the Fall 2011 schedule for the mobile mammogram program.
The mobile mammography van will visit Hoonah, Haines, Skagway, Klawock, Craig and Metlakatla during the late-summer and fall schedule. The van visits Hoonah on Aug. 22-26, Haines on Aug. 29-Sept. 12, Skagway on Sept. 13-14, Klawock on Sept. 20-30 and Oct. 5-11, Craig on Oct. 3-4 and Metlakatla on Oct. 13-21. Women are encouraged to contact their local clinics before the scheduled visit because they will need to have a recent clinical breast exam on file before they can get mammograms.
The mobile mammography program is run through a partnership between Bartlett Regional Hospital and the SEARHC WISEWOMAN Women’s Health Program. It makes regular mammography screening services available to women who live in communities where they aren’t available year round.
