Nevada Health Center’s mobile mammography unit, the Mammovan, travels throughout Nevada to provide breast cancer screening to low-income, uninsured/underinsured and geographically isolated women throughout the state. Over 2,500 underserved women receive breast cancer screening each year. Those with abnormal results receive case management/navigation assistance until cancer is ruled out or diagnosed.
“Nevada Health Centers’ Mammovan Program is honored to be a recipient of National Breast Cancer Foundation support. NBCF grant funding provides access to mammograms to underserved women who would otherwise not obtain a screening. We are grateful for the opportunity to help support efforts to reduce cancer disparities.” — Lisa Dettling, Vice President of Ancillary Services for Nevada Health Centers
