KLAWOCK - The mobile mammogram van will visit the Prince of Wales Island communities of Klawock and Craig from Friday to Oct. 13.
The van will be at the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium Alicia Roberts Medical Center in Klawock from Friday to Oct. 9 (no weekend appointments scheduled). It will be at the Craig Clinic on Oct. 10 and 13.
Women wanting to schedule a mammogram should call ARMC in Klawock at 755-4800 or the Craig Clinic at 907-826-3257. Women should schedule their mammograms at the clinic where they normally receive their health care.
A complete women's health exam within the past six months (including a clinical breast exam and heart health screening) is required before women schedule their mammogram at the SEARHC Alicia Roberts Medical Center. Women living in outlying Prince of Wales Island communities can arrange to have these exams done at their local health clinics before they schedule a mobile mammogram in Klawock.
Women with no insurance or a limited income may be eligible for free screening services. To find out if you qualify, call Mary Dinon of ARMC at 907-755-4946.
