Sarah Bush Lincoln’s Mobile Mammography Services will be hitting the road at area county health departments, banks and other locations in August.
The Mobile Mammography van helps provide mammograms to women who may not otherwise have access to, or be able to afford these life-saving preventive screens. Women who qualify will receive their mammogram free.
The mobile mammography van is available to all women regardless of their financial status. Women with insurance that covers their yearly mammogram are also welcome.
Staffed by technologists from the Sarah Bush Lincoln Mammography Department, the mobile mammography van provides digital mammography technology, the same quality services found at the Health Center. All staff members are certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technology and are further certified in mammography. These mobile mammography services are made possible in Coles County in part with funds from the Peoria Affiliate of the Susan G. Koman for the Cure®.
The van will be at: SBL Charleston Clinic East on August 5; US Bank, Mattoon on August 10; Coles County Health Department, Charleston on August 18; First Mid Illinois Bank & Trust, Charleston on August 31.
To make an appointment for a mammogram on the mobile van at a location near you, call 1-800-639-5929.
