The mobile unit will offer mammograms on Aug. 24 at Owen's South, 1245 S. Jefferson St., Huntington; on Sept. 21 at Owen's North, 2718 Guilford St., Huntington; and on Oct. 5 at Seminary United Methodist Church, 250 N. Seminary St., Roanoke.

The Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) performs the screening.  For women who have insurance, they will bill the insurance company. If the patient does not have insurance but has the ability to pay, the BDC offers a reduced rate if paid the day of the screening.

For women without insurance, with a high deductible or without resources to pay, funding is available.
