Mobile Mammography Sunday Program

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

UTMB Health is partnering with The Ruth Kempner Endowment for Breast Cancer Screening and/or The Susan G. Komen Foundation 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:
