Winnemucca, Nev. (June 24 & 25, 2013)- We know that early detection of breast cancer saves lives, however many women in northern Nevada have never had a mammogram. Fear, lack of funds, transportation conflicts, or no insurance are just some of the reasons women have not accessed a breast cancer screening. The Nevada Health Centers Mammovan, a mobile mammography unit, removes some of those barriers making breast cancer screenings more accessible to uninsured, and underserved women in need.

The Mammovan will be visiting Winnemucca on June 24th and 25th offering mammograms to women who are 40 years of age or older. Most insurance, Medicaid, Medicare and Women's Health Connection are accepted. Through the kind support of several partner organizations, mammograms will be available to low-income, uninsured women at no cost to them upon qualification. If you would like to know more information about the Mammovan or to schedule an appointment, please call, 1-877-581-6266.

The Mammovan is a program of Nevada Health Centers and the mammograms are supported through generous grants from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Northern Nevada Affiliate, The David and Linda Shaheen Foundation, Live Rude Girls, Smith's Food & Drug Stores, Inc., The Safeway Foundation, The Vons Foundation, The National Breast Cancer Foundation, The Caesar's Foundation and others.
