Breast Cancer Screening

Current Programs

  • Project VALET

    Project VALET (Providing Valuable Area Life-Saving Exams in Town) is a mammography education and screening program for asymptomatic women ages 40 to 69, who are uninsured, without county assistance and who are patients in participating clinics.

    Project VALET (PV) addresses barriers of cost and transportation by bringing free mobile mammography to the communities where eligible women reside.

    Project VALET also provides women with necessary follow-up diagnostic testing if needed, made possible through partnerships with participating facilities.
