Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico's Best Bet, is teaming up with Assured Imaging to bring breast cancer screenings to the Northern Rio Rancho and Bernalillo area. Assured Imaging's mobile mammography unit will be onsite at the casino conducting breast cancer screenings on Monday, Nov. 20, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"Early detection is by far our greatest weapon against breast cancer, so Santa Ana Star Casino is proud to support the women of our community by providing an easy, convenient opportunity for them to get their yearly mammograms," said Santa Ana Star Casino Director of Marketing Tammy Neil. "Going to a radiologist's office can be stressful and time-consuming. Our mobile mammography event removes some of the common obstacles and allows women to receive potentially life-saving mammograms in a private, comfortable environment."
Women who would like to receive a breast cancer screening at the mobile mammography event at Santa Ana Star Casino should call (888) 233-6121 to schedule an appointment. Walk-ups are permitted, but priority is given to women with appointments.
Uninsured or underinsured women can also contact the New Mexico Department of Health's Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program at (877) 852-2585 to locate a screening clinic or medical provider who can qualify them for a no-cost breast cancer screening.
For more information or to schedule an appointment for the mobile mammography unit's stop at Santa Ana Star Casino, call (888) 233-6121.
