Mobile mammogram van will visit Yakutat
YAKUTAT - The mobile mammogram van will visit Yakutat starting at 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 29, with appointments running through the afternoon of Tuesday, June 3 (no weekend appointments).

Women wanting to schedule a mammogram should call Paula Totland at the the Yakutat Community Health Center, 784-3275.

All women will need to arrange to have a current clinical breast exam (done within the past six months) before they schedule their mammogram. If you have not had a current breast exam since November, you will need to arrange to have one before you schedule your mammogram. If you are also due for your women's health exam, including your Pap test, please let the clinic know so sufficient time is scheduled for you to have this done.

Women with no insurance and/or a limited income may be eligible to receive these services for free.

The mobile mammogram van is sponsored by Bartlett Regional Hospital and the SEARHC Breast and Cervical Health Program.
