Partnership increases access to mammograms

Through a partnership with the MHC Coalition for Health and Wellness and UVA Health (UVA Cancer Institute and UVA Breast Care) and New College Institute, nine local women were able to conveniently access mammograms that may not have able to receive them otherwise.

UVA’s Mobile Mammography Coach, operated by the UVA Breast Care Program, brings breast screening services to women at workplaces, community locations, and other healthcare facilities throughout Virginia. It’s equipped with the latest in breast screening technology (3D mammography) and can accommodate up to 25 exams daily.

Mammograms were scheduled by appointment only and to be screened, patients must have an active relationship with your healthcare provider.
