The Mammogram Van is in Fort St. John until Thursday.
The van contains all of the equipment needed for breast exams. It offers free screenings for women 40 – 79 years of age. Exams will be done in a private room inside the Fort St. John Medical Clinic.
Regional Community Coordinator Manon Joice says this service lessens the stress on the Northern Health services.

Each 15-minute screening consists of four x-rays that check for breast tissue abnormalities. Results then get sent to the patients’ addresses.
Screenings will be done by appointments. To book a free mammogram call 1-800-663-9203.
