Mammography bus makes a stop at elementary school

By Lynda Figueredo - bioemail

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - St. Joseph's Candler's mobile mammography screening machine spent the day in front of the Largo Tibet Elementary School. Teachers and parents were able to just walk outside and get their yearly mammogram.

"We are working people and it is not always easy to get off work and go somewhere else to get a mammogram and this service comes right to the job," said Mammography Technologist Kimberly Jones-Dowell. "The earlier that you catch breast cancer the better chance there is for survival."

The event is sponsored by the parent center and occurs twice a year.

To make an appointment call 912.819.6800, or to host the mobile unit at your workplace call 912.354.9357.
