Salt Lake Regional Medical Center will offer public mammogram screenings at St. Vincent Church, 1375 E. Spring Lane, on Thursday, April 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through its Mobile Mammography Program.

The specially equipped van travels throughout the state to provide services to women in rural Utah who would otherwise need to trav-el to larger cities for the procedure. The films are processed in Salt Lake City and women are notified of the results within four weeks.Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in American women ages 35 to 55. Mammography is the largest factor in detecting breast cancer.

Most mammogram screenings are walk-in cases, but an appointment is encouraged. For information, call Salt Lake Regional Mobile Mammography at 1-800-848-7687.
