Mobile Mammography Screenings

The goal for this Women’s Health Fair is to provide easy access to information and vital health resources for the female-identifying members of our community. We hope to see you there, but for those unable to attend the event, there will be two dates for mobile mammography screenings at branch locations provided by UC Health.
