CHI Memorial Mobile Health Coach To Visit Chattanooga And Dalton

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

CHI Memorial’s mobile health coach will provide mammography screenings at New United Missionary Baptist Church, 2629 Tunnel Blvd., in Chattanooga on Friday, from 4 – 8 p.m. On Saturday, the mobile coaches will be at Inner Peace Church, 2125 Tunnel Blvd., in Chattanooga from 11 a.m.

– 2 p.m. and at Love Fellowship Church, 2456 Yeager Drive, in Dalton, from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. The Hats Off For Women’s Health education program will be presented at 10 a.m. at Love Fellowship Church.

 

All women should have one screening mammogram between the ages of 35-40. After age 40, a screening mammogram is recommended every year.  Any woman who meets these age guidelines and has not had a mammogram in the past 12 months may participate, with or without insurance.

 

For those with insurance, you must bring your insurance card and a photo ID, such as a driver’s license. Insurance will be filed for you.  If you do not have insurance, you may qualify for financial assistance.  The MaryEllen Locher Breast Center receives grant funds from Avon Breast Cancer Crusade to provide women with education about and access to breast health services.  Partnerships with Tennessee Breast and Cervical Screening Program and the Susan G. Komen Foundation provide eligible uninsured and under-insured women with breast and cervical screenings.  If an abnormality is discovered, the diagnostic work up is covered and a financial plan is provided for any follow-up care.

 

Women need to know their doctor’s first and last name.

 

To schedule a screening, call 423-495-4040 or 866-591-2254.
