GE Mammovan Launched in Wyoming

Wyoming Women First launched  the GE Mammovan, a mobile mammography van, during a ceremony in Cheyenne Wednesday. Wyoming Women First is a partnership between General Electric (GE),  Susan G. Komen for the cure and the state of Wyoming.

Wyoming has one of the worst breast cancer screening rates in the country, with access a major barrier. Many Wyoming women must drive an average distance of 70 miles to a mammography screening facility. Nationally, 25 percent of women do not get screened for breast cancer, while in Wyoming that number is 33 percent. Governor Matt Mead says he believes the GE Mammovan will help close that gap.
The GE Mammovan will crisscross the state and screen about 15,000 local women over the next year. The Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation donated $1.2 million dollars to cover out-of-pocket costs for uninsured women over 40.
