Screening goes mobile - bringing screening to the workplace
Wednesday, 27 January 2016 13:40

Westmead Breast Cancer Institute have created a new program aimed at increasing breast screening rates for busy women, by bringing mammograms to the workplace.

In collaboration with local businesses and employers, the BCI mobile van will be visiting workplaces including Blacktown Council, the Arnott's factory at Huntingwood and Sydney Business Park at Marden Park. By making it more convenient for women to have a free, 15 minute screening mammogram, BCI hopes to increase participation rates for the women of Western Sydney.
