Mobile mammogram van in Haines on Sept. 4-13
HAINES - The mobile mammogram van will visit Haines starting on Tuesday, Sept. 4, with appointments running through Thursday, Sept. 13.

Women wanting to schedule a mammogram should call Pam Sloper of the Haines Health Center at 766-6367. Women with no insurance and/or a limited income may be eligible for a free mammogram. Women will need to arrange to have a current clinical breast exam (done within the past six months) before they schedule their mammogram.

Women also should plan to have an annual heart health screening as an important part of being a healthy woman. WISEWOMAN staff will be on hand during the mobile mammogram visit to perform or arrange your heart health screening.

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.
