Mobile mammography service coming to Ponoka

Women ages 50 to 74 — the group most at risk of developing breast cancer — will have local access to mammography services next month when Alberta Health Services’ (AHS) Screen Test program visits Ponoka.

A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Ponoka Community Health Centre, located at 5900 2A Highway, on Nov. 7 to 10, 12, 14-19 and 21.

Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling toll-free 1-800-667-0604.

A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer.

Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.

Due to COVID-19, Screen Test is taking a number of precautions to ensure the safety of clients and staff. Details will be shared when you call to book your appointment.

Screen Test has been bringing screening mammography to Alberta communities for the past 30 years.

“Together we are saving love, one community at a time,” stated AHS in a press release.
