CHI Memorial to help provide health screenings
CHI Memorial is teaming up with the Remote Area Medical (RAM) clinic to provide mammography and lung CT screenings. Mobile health coaches will be at Cleveland High School from June 1-2 to help.
All women are recommended to have one mammogram between the ages of 35-40. After that, mammograms are recommended every year. Any woman fitting those age guidelines can participate in the mobile screenings, even without insurance.
A Breathe.Easy. mobile lung CT coach will provide the lung CT screenings, designed to diagnose lung cancer at its earliest stages. Private insurance covers these screenings for high-risk individuals, and they are also covered by Medicare and Medicaid.
To schedule a mammography screening, call 423-495-4040 or 866-591-2254.
To see if a lung CT is right for you, or to schedule a screening, call 423-495-LUNG (5864).
