The SEARHC WISEWOMAN Women’s Health Program and Bartlett Regional Hospital have set the mobile mammogram program spring 2012 schedule.
The mobile mammography van will visit Haines, Kake, Gustavus, Skagway, Yakutat and Angoon this spring and early summer. The van is scheduled to visit Kake on May 1-4, Haines on May 9-22, Angoon on May 24-30, Skagway on June 4-7, Yakutat on June 13-18, and Gustavus on June 22 (no weekend appointments). Women are encouraged to contact their local clinics prior to the scheduled visit because they will need to receive a clinical breast exam before they can get their 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.
