“I am honored to partner with Rochester Regional Health to make breast cancer screenings more accessible to women in our community,” said Senator Helming. “It is estimated that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Early detection is critical to saving lives. I encourage women to schedule a mammogram appointment and get screened.”
“To help make our community healthier, it takes all of us working together to make sure all of our residents have access to high-quality health care,” said Tonya Brooks, Program Manager, Mobile Mammography Program, Rochester Regional Health. “By bringing our Mobile Mammography Center into communities in which people live, it helps eliminate one of the barriers that keep women from getting this crucial screening that is proven to save lives.”
If you have insurance, please bring your insurance card. But insurance is not required. The screenings are free for women 40 and older who have not been screened in the past year.
Appointments are required and space is limited. Please call 585-922-PINK(7465) to schedule an appointment. For more information, visit www.rochesterregional.org/pink.
