Women ages 50 to 74—the group most at risk of developing breast cancer—will have local access to mammography services next month when Alberta Health Services’ Screen Test program visits the community of Kitscoty.  
A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Kitscoty Community Hall on Oct. 18 and 20.
Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling 1-800-667-0604.
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer.
Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.

Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than four million adults and children living in Alberta.
Its mission is to provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.
