The world turns pink in October for breast cancer awareness, and North Metro Fire Rescue District wants to make it easier for residents to undergo a routine mammogram closer to home. The fire district is partnering with St. Joseph Hospital to bring their mobile mammography van to Broomfield and Northglenn to provide breast cancer screenings this fall.
The mobile clinic will stop in Northglenn at North Metro Fire Station 62, 10550 Huron St., on November 19 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. It will make another stop in Broomfield on December 7 at Broomfield’s Health and Human Services parking lot, 100 Spader Way.
Appointments take only 20 minutes and are free or low-cost to most individuals. Those wanting to make an appointment can contact St. Joseph's at 303-689-4595 to schedule an appointment and review a list of qualifications. Walk-up appointments are also welcome as the schedule allows.
The mammography van includes some of the latest technology in imaging, including 3D digital mammography and breast density measurement, which make getting a mammogram easier while producing more accurate diagnostic results.
