The UAMS Mobile Mammography Program, a partnership between UAMS’ Department
of Radiology and Winthrop P. Rockfeller Cancer Institute, was created to respond to
the needs of women living in the 14 counties with no permanent certified mammography
facilities. The MammoVan staff will work with rural primary care providers, community
health centers and other local community organizations to establish sites for screening
in these 26 counties. Free screenings will be made available to eligible uninsured women.
