The Evolving State of Mammography Screening Services by Nathaniel Tran Aug 26

I am nearing completion of my internship at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for Dana-Farber’s Mammography Van (DFMV). The last time I blogged about my experience, we were planning a visit to bring mobile mammogram screening services to The Sharewood Project in Malden, MA. Due to various circumstances, that event was cancelled, but a new partnership with the Malden YMCA was established to replace the lost services. Staying true to the “ACE Project” this partnership allows Dana-Farber to access patients in a new region of the greater Boston area that was not previously serviced. Most patients in the Malden/Medford/Everett area are currently served by Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) and its affiliates with the nearest community health centers located 40-55 minutes away.
