Methodist Mobile 3D Mammography

More Access. More Convenience. More Survivors.

24 Nebraskans are diagnosed with breast cancer each week. Access to mammograms for early detection and treatment of breast cancer has never been more important, yet Nebraska ranks a low 40th in the nation in the percentage of women 40 and older who report having a mammogram within the past two years.

Sections of Douglas and Saunders counties have been named priority screening access areas by Susan G. Komen Great Plains due to dramatically higher rates of late-stage breast cancer diagnosis and death due to breast cancer.

Time, convenience, cost and transportation are universal barriers that can delay or discourage lifesaving screenings. Methodist Mobile 3D Mammography removes those barriers and makes it easier for busy women of all races, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds to prioritize their own health care.

Impact: 

In 2023, the Methodist Mobile 3D Mammography team conducted almost 3,000 mammograms, including almost 520 first-time mammograms

“If it hadn’t been for Women Connect, I’d probably still be sitting on it and not knowing that it was melanoma,” Watts said.

6News: Methodist Hospital Foundation Promotes Women’s Health at Weekend Event

Heart disease is sometimes thought of as a “man’s disease,” but almost as many women die of heart disease each year in the U.S. In fact, we’re losing a woman to heart disease almost every minute. The death rate is 35 percent higher among Black women than their White counterparts.

We're grateful to WOWT-Channel 6 for helping us spread the word to women throughout our communities: your heart health deserves to be a priority! Watch the report here.
