Women's Health Coach to visit NIC

The Women's Health Services Coach, a program of Sacred Heart Medical Center and Inland Imaging of Spokane, will provide mammography services on NIC's campus from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28 and from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29. The coach is a self-contained, 40-foot mobile unit equipped to provide mammography screenings and develop film on-site. Coach staff members also provide personalized breast self-examination education. Women must be at least 30 years old to have a screening performed on the coach. Women 40 and older can have a mammogram without a physician's referral and still have the service covered by insurance. Financial assistance may be available to those without insurance. Heel bone density/osteoporosis screenings will also be available for $15. Insurance cannot be billed for this service. The coach will be parked in front of Edminster Student Union Building on NIC's main campus and will take patients by appointment. Patients should be prepared to provide insurance cards and films from previous mammograms if they were not taken at Inland Imaging. Information: (208) 769-7818.
