ANGOON - A mobile mammogram van will visit Angoon starting at 8:30 a.m. Monday, with appointments available through 4 p.m. April 22. This year, the van has been updated with digital imaging on board.
Women wanting to schedule a mammogram should call the Jessie Norma Jim Medical Center in Angoon at 788-4600. Women who aren't due for a screening in the next couple of months also should call, because it's possible the mobile mammogram van might be able to fit others in.
The SEARHC Women's Health Program provides free clinical breast exams, mammograms, Pap tests and cardiovascular screenings for all women age 40-64 who meet income and insurance guidelines. For more information, contact the Jessie Norma Jim Medical Center or call the SEARHC Women's Health Program at 1-888-388-8782.
The mobile mammogram van program is sponsored by Bartlett Regional Hospital and SEARHC.
