Women ages 50 to 74 — the group most at risk of developing breast cancer — will have local access to mammography services when Alberta Health Services’ Screen Test program arrives in two communities this month.


A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Prairie Rose Lodge, 117 3 Ave. N.W., north side of the lodge off 4 Ave., April 20 and 21 in Milk River.
Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling 1-800-667-0604.
A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at Brocket's Aakom-Kiyii Health Services, 1880 15 Ave., just east of the building in the old health centre parking lot, April 30-May 2.
Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling 1-800-667-0604, or 403-965-3822.

As well, a mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Fort Macleod Health Centre (hospital), 744 26 St. S, May 3, 4 and 5. Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling 1-800-667-0604.

Screen Test is improving access to cancer screening for hundreds of women in rural Alberta communities where mammography is not readily available.
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.
