CVMC gets grant for mammogram screening
Carson Valley Medical Center received a grant from Susan G. Komen to assist in providing access to screening mammography services for the underinsured and uninsured.
Patients without insurance or those with high deductibles for mammograms can apply for assistance through this grant when they register at CVMC.
A portion of the grant will support education and awareness of breast cancer to members of the community, targeting community members under 40, while promoting access to resources and delivering the life-saving message of early detection.
Carson Valley Medical Center is located at the south end of Gardnerville at 1107 Highway 395.
