UTMB offers 'Sunday Screenings'
Free screening mammograms for uninsured Galveston County residents

The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and The Ruth Kempner Endowment for Breast Cancer Screening are partnering to provide free screening mammograms for uninsured women in Galveston County.

Uninsured women with limited transportation resources may have difficulty getting to scheduled mammography screening appointments or forgo their annual screening mammograms completely. In an effort to reach these uninsured women, UTMB Health is bringing its mobile mammography van to churches in Galveston County.

Uninsured program participants do not need to be members of these church congregations in order to receive a free screening mammogram and breast exam. However, participants will need to pre-register for the program and meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Legal resident of Galveston County
  • 40-64 years old
  • Uninsured with no mammogram coverage through the Medicaid and/or Medicare health care systems
  • Not pregnant
  • Have not received a mammogram in the last 12 months
  • No personal history of breast cancer in the last 5 years
  • No current breast pain, breast discharge or palpable breast abnormalities

The mobile mammography van will provide free breast exams and screening mammograms for pre-registered, uninsured women from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, May 20 at Avenue L Baptist Church in Galveston. For information, call (409) 762-8795.

The van will also visit the Greater Barbour’s Chapel Baptist Church in Texas City from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 3. For information, call (409) 935-1100.

To enroll in the program, pick up a registration packet from either church office, the Radiology Department at UTMB in Galveston or the UTMB Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes in League City.

If you have any questions about the program, call UTMB Radiology at (409) 772-6874.
