Mobile Mammography Unit coming to Palestine April 12

PALESTINE, April 4, 2013--The East Texas Medical Center (ETMC) Mobile Mammography will be at the Palestine Resource Center for Independent Living’s Community Health Fair on Friday, April 12. The fair will be held at the Evangelistic Temple, 3011 North Loop 256 in Palestine. 

All mammograms performed on the mobile unit are digital screening mammograms which is the best known method in early detection of breast cancer.  The mobile mammography unit is FDA approved, American College of Radiology (ACR) accredited, and staffed by certified female mammography technologists. 

Because the number of digital mammograms that can be screened in one day is limited, it is important to call ETMC as early as possible at 1-800-648-8141 (press 3), to schedule your appointment. ETMC accepts and files on all insurances including Medicare, Medicaid, and other third party insurance. Funding is also available to cover women who do not have insurance, and they may contact Jessie Bell at 903-590-2988 to schedule their mammogram.
