mammograms

Project VALET (Valuable Area Life-saving Exams in Town) is a mammography education and screening program for asymptomatic women ages 40 to 69, who are uninsured, without county assistance and who are patients at Christ Clinic. Project VALET addresses barriers of cost and transportation by bringing free mobile mammography to the communities where eligible women reside. 


Project VALET also provides women with necessary follow-up diagnostic testing, should it be needed, made possible through partnerships with participating facilities. Participation in Project VALET is free to Christ Clinic patients who qualify.
