Women ages 45 to 74 — the group most at risk of developing breast cancer — will have local access to mammography services next month when Alberta Health Services’ Screen Test program visits Stettler. 

  A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Stettler Hospital and Care Centre, 5912 47 Ave. on Feb. 1-4, 6, 7 and 8. Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling toll-free 1-800-667-0604.  

A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.  

Due to COVID-19, Screen Test is taking a number of precautions to ensure the safety of clients and staff. Details will be shared when you call to book your appointment.
