Early detection is key in the fight against breast cancer, so access to screenings is critically important.
To accommodate women who are due for a mammography screening, the Nevada Health Centers’ Mammovan will be making numerous stops in Northern Nevada.
Call 1-877-581-6266, option 1 to make an appointment.
Mammography screenings are primarily for women age 40 and older; however, screenings will be provided to those younger than 40 that have a screening referral from a provider. Pre-screening for any COVID-19 related symptoms will occur prior to entering the Mammovan.

Nevada Health Centers operates the Mammovan, a mobile mammography van that provides convenient access to mammography services to women. The Mammovan began operations in 2000 and was initially made possible by a grant secured by former Congressman John Ensign and former First Lady of Nevada, Dema Guinn.
