Memorial's Mobile Health Coach
Join the Mary Ellen Locher Breast Center for the Memorial Mobile Health Coach for mammograms. Held at Olivet Baptist Church Saturday, November 23rd from 9 am to 1 pm. To schedule your mammogram call 423-495-4040 or 1-866-591-2254. All women should have one screening mammogram between the ages of 35 and 40. After age 40, a screening mammogram is recommended every year. If you meet these age guidelines and have not had a mammogram in the last 12 months, you may participate, with or without insurance. Mary Ellen Breast Center will file all types of insurance, if no insurance please provide a physician's name so the mammogram report can be submitted to that provider. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
The Tennessee Cancer Coalition will present the Tops and Bottoms on that same date from 10 am 12 pm in the Fellowship Hall. This Coalition will present a free Cervical and Breast Cancer presentation to all.
If you have any breast abnormalities, even a small change or concern, call your doctor, who may order a diagnostic mammogram. We only do screening mammograms on the mobile unit. For those who have insurance, we will file your insurance for you, but you must furnish your insurance card and a photo ID such as your driver's license. You need to know your doctor's first and last name. We must have a doctor's name to send your report.
