CHI Memorial Mammography Health Coach to Visit Chattanooga Red Wolves ‘P!nk Out’ Game

10/12/20

 

CHI Memorial’s MaryEllen Locher Breast Center is excited to partner with the Chattanooga Red Wolves to provide screening
mammograms at the soccer club’s game on Saturday, October 17, 2020.  The mobile mammography coach will be at CHI Memorial Stadium from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m.  Women can make appointments to have a screening mammogram at this location by calling 423.495.4040.  Walk-ons are also welcome.  All patients will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms.  Please bring a mask to wear during the appointment.  Masks will be provided to anyone who doesn’t have one. 

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, everyone who has a mammogram at any of the five MaryEllen Locher Breast Center locations during October will receive a free pink tote bag.  As part of the Red Wolves P!nk Out game, the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center will also give away pink rally towels to those in attendance.

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 partners with Tennessee Breast and Cervical Screening Program and the Susan G. Komen Foundation to 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.

The Chattanooga Red Wolves’ CHI Memorial Stadium is located at 6198 N. Mack Smith Road, East Ridge, TN 37412.  Continue through the gates, and follow the gravel road to the stadium.
