Spectrum Health to Host Mobile LGBTQ + Affirmation Screening Event

Spectrum Health to Host Mobile LGBTQ + Affirmation Screening Event

The screening event is in partnership with the Baxter Community Center, Grand Rapids Pride Center, Grand Rapids LGBTQ+ Healthcare Consortium and the West Michigan Coalition for Breast Health. Clinical staff from the Spectrum Health Cancer Center who are familiar with the LGBTQ+ community and their health care needs will be on-hand for consultations. Breast cancer is most treatable and curable when it is detected early. Therefore, the American College of Radiology urges women to get a mammogram every year once they reach age 40. Depending on family history, risks and your physician’s findings, mammography may be recommended earlier.

The mobile unit provides the same high-quality service as Spectrum Health’s 14 Betty Ford Breast Care Services locations. Patients will be welcomed in a comfortable registration and waiting area. After being registered, patients use private dressing rooms before receiving their mammogram.
