Free mammograms at Civic Center
Screenings covered by most insurances, will only take 15 minutes to complete

Early detection has proven to reduce breast cancer mortality rates, yet many women still skip the screenings.

But according to Jennifer Valenti, manager of breast imaging for Providence-Providence Park Hospital, a mammogram is the easiest thing a woman can do. 

In an effort to encourage women age 40 or older to get screened, the City has  partnered with Providence Park Hospital to bring its mobile mammography unit to the Novi Civic Center on Oct. 18. All women in the community over the age of 40 are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to get screened. Screenings are covered by most insurances and will take only 15 minutes to complete.

You can make an appointment by calling  248.567.0316  or emailing wduvall@cityofnovi.org and completing the registration form found on cityofnovi.org.  Appointment times are on a first come basis. Appointments can be made in 15 minute increments.
