Joanie Abdu Mobile Mammography Unit visiting EP Library

Primary tabs

The Joanie Abdu Mobile Mammography Unit is visiting the East Palestine Memorial Public Library on Friday, April 28, 2017 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

The first mobile unit in eastern Ohio to offer 3D mammography, this advanced technology enables women to have state-of-the-art screening mammograms in the convenience of their own community.  3D Mammography exams are clinically proven to detect 41 percent more invasive breast cancers. The mobile unit also offers radiation-free bone density screenings that can identify a patient’s risk of developing osteoporosis and assessing their risk of future fracture.

Mammograms are covered by most health plans.  For best coverage, please verify Mercy Health/St. Elizabeth’s and the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center are in-network providers by calling your insurance carrier.

You may be eligible for financial assistance under the Joanie’s Promise Program if you do not have insurance or have a high deductible. 

You must be age 40 or older to preregister.   Beginning at age 40, women should have a yearly mammogram.   For more information, please call the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center at 330-480-2654.

You can pre-register by calling the library at 330-426-3778.  We will ask for your name, age, and telephone number and that information will be provided to the Breast Care Center.
