Women can receive complimentary tests for breast cancer Friday as a state-of-the-art detection service rolls into Issaquah.
The effort, the Ford Women’s Health Initiative Mobile Breast Imaging Tour, offers the latest in 3-D breast cancer detection technology inside a bus outfitted as a mobile testing unit. The service is open to all women.
The bus stops at Walgreens, 6300 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E. Women interested in the service must make appointments, because space is limited. Call 855-380-TEST toll free or go to www.fordwomenshealth.com.
The local Ford dealership, Evergreen Ford, joined a national effort to bring the mobile testing unit to Issaquah. Ford Motor Co. Fund — a charitable arm of automaker Ford Motor Co. — Hope Now International and mobile medical-testing provider HealthFair partnered to offer the service.
The mobile detection unit last stopped at the local Walgreens in November 2011.
