Mammogram Van in Fort St. John until Thursday


The Mammogram Van is in Fort St. John until Thursday.

The van contains all of the equipment needed for breast exams. It offers free screenings for women 40 – 79 years of age. Exams will be done in a private room inside the Fort St. John Medical Clinic.

Regional Community Coordinator Manon Joice says this service lessens the stress on the Northern Health services.

Each 15-minute screening consists of four x-rays that check for breast tissue abnormalities. Results then get sent to the patients’ addresses.

Screenings will be done by appointments. To book a free mammogram call 1-800-663-9203.
