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 also should call, because it's possible the mobile mammogram van might be able to fit you in.

Women with no insurance and/or a limited income may be eligible for a free mammogram.

To find out if you qualify for a free mobile mammogram, contact the Yakutat Community Health Center.

Women will need to arrange to have a current clinical breast exam (done within the past six months) before they schedule their mammogram.

The mobile mammography program is run through a partnership between Bartlett Regional Hospital and the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium Breast and Cervical Health Program.
