On Wellness in WV

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Bonnie’s Bus, a digital mammography center on wheels, will visit Jefferson and Hardy counties offering digital mammograms and breast care education to women.

A service of WVU Healthcare and the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, Bonnie’s Bus will be at:

The African American Heritage Festival in Charles Town. The Bus will be parked beside the Wright-Denny School from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 17. For an appointment, call 1-877-287-2272.

E. A. Hawse Health Center in Baker from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 30. For an appointment, call 304-897-5915 ext. 262. 262

The mammograms are billed to private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare if available. Mammograms for women who do not have insurance will be covered by the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (WVBCCSP) or through special grant funds from the West Virginia affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. No woman over 40 is turned away due to lack of funding.  A physician’s order is needed for a mammogram.
