UTMB offers ‘Sunday Screenings’
Free screening mammograms for uninsured Galveston County residents

The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and The Ruth Kempner Endowment for Breast Cancer Screening are partnering to provide free screening mammograms for uninsured women in Galveston County.

Uninsured women with limited transportation resources may have difficulty getting to scheduled mammography screening appointments or forgo their annual screening mammograms completely. In an effort to reach these uninsured women, UTMB Health is bringing its mobile mammography van to churches in Galveston County. 

Uninsured program participants do not need to be members of these church congregations in order to receive a free screening mammogram and breast exam. However, participants will need to pre-register for the program and meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Legal resident of Galveston County
  • 40-64 years old
  • Uninsured with no mammogram coverage through the Medicaid and/or Medicare health care systems
  • Not pregnant
  • Have not received a mammogram in the last 12 months
  • No personal history of breast cancer in the last 5 years
  • No current breast pain, breast discharge or palpable breast abnormalities

The mobile mammography van will provide free breast exams and screening mammograms for pre-registered, uninsured women from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, May 20 at Avenue L Baptist Church in Galveston. For information, call 409-762-8795.

The van will also visit the Greater Barbour’s Chapel Baptist Church in Texas City from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 3. For information, call 409-935-1100.

To enroll in the program, pick up a registration packet from either church office, the Radiology Department at UTMB in Galveston or the UTMB Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes in League City.

If you have any questions about the program, call UTMB Radiology at 409-772-6874.

 

1st  annual UTMB Sunday Screening Mammogram Program

UTMB is dedicated to community outreach! In honor of breast cancer awareness month, UTMB Health and The Ruth Kempner Endowment for Breast Cancer Screening partnered to provide free screening mammograms for uninsured women in our community. The Susan G. Komen foundation has stated that a significant amount of uninsured African American women in Galveston County are not receiving their annual screening mammograms. In an effort to reach these uninsured women, UTMB Health took the mobile mammography van to African American churches in Galveston County and provided free screening mammograms. Many women of all backgrounds and ethnicities took part in this wonderful program which was hosted at Greater St. Matthews Baptist Church in Hitchcock, TX (Reverend and Mrs. W.L. Randall, Jr.) on Sunday October 23, 2011 and Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church in Galveston, TX on Sunday October 30, 2011 (Reverend & Mrs. N. D. Burkley, Sr.). This program highlights our commitment to the underserved residents of Galveston County, and reflects our desire to make a positive impact in our local area.
