CHI Memorial mammography health coach to visit Hamilton County

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


CHI Memorial’s mobile health coach will provide mammography screenings at Radiant Beauty Salon on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.; at New United Missionary Baptist Church on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 from 4 – 7 p.m.; at CHI Memorial Community Health on Friday, October 26, 2018 from 9 a.m. – noon; and at Inner Peace Church on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

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.
