Ellis Fischel Mammography Cancer Screening Mobile
Nov. 7, beginning at 8 a.m.
601 W Main St, Jefferson City
Breast cancer is the second most common newly diagnosed cancer and second leading cause of cancer death among women in the US. The key factor in fighting this disease is early detection.
Ellis Fischel Cancer Center from the University of Missouri Health Care is donating their time to our MoDOT female employees for preventative screenings. The screenings are open to all Central Office and Central District female employees. Most insurance companies cover one mammography screening a year, so check with your provider.
There are 26 spots available and are open on a first come, first serve basis. To register contact Amanda Henley (573) 526-5617.
Note: Although this screening is for females only, males should also be checking for abnormal knots or thickening in the breast. Men are screened by diagnostic testing. Breast cancer in men is rare, but it does happen (about one percent of all breast cancer cases in the U.S.) Breast cancer screening is only recommended for some men at higher risk due to an inherited gene mutation or a strong family history.
