The mission of Moncrief Cancer Institute* is to be a leader in our community’s efforts to fight cancer and reduce its burden throughout the continuum of care utilizing education and community awareness, prevention and early detection, behavioral and nutritional science, and research and innovative technologies. Moncrief provides nearly 10,000 free breast screenings a year to uninsured and underinsured women in 35 counties throughout North and Central Texas. In some counties, we provide mammograms aboard our Mobile Screening Clinic, an 18-wheeler that’s equipped with private dressing and exam rooms, plus advanced, 3D breast tomosynthesis screening equipment. In addition, Moncrief partners with local hospitals and clinics in many counties to provide breast screening in facilities across North and Central Texas.
“Our partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation allows us to provide thousands of free, life-saving mammograms each year for uninsured and underserved women who would otherwise not have access. Together, we are reducing the threat and impact of breast cancer, and we are grateful for the continued support.” — Keith Argenbright, M.D., Moncrief Cancer Institute
