Benefits-eligible employees, and spouses covered by their insurance, have a quick and convenient opportunity to participate in this lifesaving screening on the University of Arizona campus.
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in the U.S., and early detection is a proven line of defense against this deadly disease. Unfortunately, these vital screenings all but halted in early 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
About the free screening
This service is provided through the Mobile On-site Mammography program; it includes a full-field, 3D digital mammogram with computer-aided detection. People with breast implants are welcome. Patients under age 35 must have a doctor’s referral, and MOM is unable to screen people who are pregnant or nursing, unless referred by a physician. CDC-compliant COVID-19 protocols will be in place, and patients must wear face coverings.
Registration is required, and appointments are available on May 13, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. To learn more, visit the Life and Work Connections website.
