Tensas Community Health Center works with Partners in Wellness to offer FREE mammograms to women in rural Tensas Parish.
A mobile screening unit operated by Feist-Weiller Cancer Center’s Partners in Wellness program mitigates the barriers of cost and access for Louisiana residents in need of routine health screenings.
The 40-foot-long mobile screening unit has digital mammography equipment, an exam room, a waiting area and two dressing rooms. The unit contains a high-speed wireless link to the Rural Health Information Exchange Network, which links rural clinics and hospitals. This connection permits physicians at LSU Health Shreveport to perform consults and read mammograms for women ages 40+ in real-time.
