Mobile mammogram van in Yakutat on June 13-18
YAKUTAT - The mobile mammogram van will visit Yakutat starting at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13, with appointments running through noon on Monday, June 18. No appointments will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 16-17). Women wanting to schedule a mammogram should call the Yakutat Community Health Center at 784-3275. Women who aren't due for a screening for a couple of months should call, because it's possible the mobile mammogram van might be able to accommodate. Women with no insurance and/or a limited income may be eligible for a free mammogram. Women will need to arrange a current clinical breast exam (done within the past six months) before they schedule their mammogram.
