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.
