Women in Bonnyville will have the opportunity to be screened for breast cancer. Alberta Health Services is bringing its mobile “Screening for Life” unit to the Bonnyville Health Centre from January 3rd to the 5th and then again from the 7th to the 12th.
The mobile mammography clinic travels around the province screening women ages 50 to 74 for the disease. A mammogram allows doctors to see changes in the tissue of the breast and allow for early detection of cancer.
Anyone interested can book an appointed with the mobile clinic by calling AHS at 1-800-667-0604 or online.
