Methodist Medical Center encourages women to take advantage of the Mobile Mammography Van during the month of May.
Digital mammography equipment is used for faster and more comfortable exams.
Methodist says there is no need for a doctor's order to receive a screening mammogram if patients are age 40 or over.
Those who are uninsured or underinsured may qualify for a free mammogram.
Appointments can be made by calling 671-8282.
