Mobile Mammography Sunday Program

UTMB offers ‘Sunday Screenings’ - Free Screening Mammograms for women in our community

 

UTMB Health and The Ruth Kempner Endowment for Breast Cancer Screening are partnering to provide free screening mammograms for uninsured women in our community. The Susan G. Komen foundation has stated that a significant number of uninsured women in Galveston County are not receiving their annual screening mammograms. In an effort to reach these uninsured women, UTMB Health is bringing the mobile mammography van to churches in Galveston County. The screenings are being offered from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at:

Sunday, September 18, 2016
Greater Barbour’s Chapel Baptist Church
7420 Hwy 1765
Texas City, Texas 77591
Phone: 409-935-1100

Sunday, October 9, 2016
Compton Memorial COGIC
2618 Ball St.
Galveston, Texas 77550
Phone: 409-739-5502
Sunday, November 6, 2016
Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church
3602 Sealy St.
Galveston, Texas 77550
Phone: 409-762-0088

 

Although these events are being hosted at local churches, uninsured program participants do not need to be members of these church congregations in order to receive a free screening mammogram. However, participants need to PRE REGISTER for the program and have to meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Legal resident of Galveston County
  • Over 40 years of age
  • Participants cannot have mammogram coverage through any health insurance including Medicaid and/or Medicare
  • 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 van will only provide free screening mammograms for pre-registered, uninsured women.

To enroll in this program, please pick up a registration packet from the church office, the Breast Imaging Department at UTMB's Galveston campus (2nd floor of the University Hospital Clinic Bldg.), or Breast Health Waiting Room at UTMB's League City Campus (2nd floor). Return the completed application and consent form no later than September 12 for Greater Barbour’s Chapel Baptist Church, October 2 for Compton Memorial COGIC and October 31 for Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church.

If you have any questions about this program or application, please call UTMB Health at (832) 505-1721.
