Mobile Mammography Van

Mobile Mammography Schedule

With access being cited as one of the main reasons women don’t have regular mammograms, Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center’s Mobile Mammography unit was put in place with help from BankCheck, a collaborative effort between nine area banks; the Illinois Department of Public Health, Office of Women’s Health; a rural Health Initiatives Partnership Program grant from the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine; and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Together they help to support a van which provides mammograms and cholesterol assessments. For women who have not been regularly receiving mammograms and health screens, the mobile mammography unit travels to area county health departments, businesses and SBL’s outlying clinics to provide access to women living in those communities.

The mobile mammography unit travels to the following counties: Coles, Clark, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Effingham, Jasper, and Moultrie.

The mobile mammography van offers mammography on digital equipment, and is performed by a registered technologist
