Mammovan

About Us

The GW Medical Faculty Associates Mobile Mammography Program makes early detection for breast cancer accessible to underserved women across the metropolitan Washington, D.C. region. The Mammovan provides screening services where women live and work, and offers screenings without regard to women’s ability to pay. The Mammovan breaks down barriers to lifesaving mammography access by partnering with community leaders, offering bilingual patient navigators, and alleviating financial constraints. Early stage breast cancer has nearly a 100 percent cure rate, and therefore it is critical to assure that all women, regardless of socio-economic status, have access to lifesaving mammography and early detection. This self-contained mobile van travels to corporate and community sites offering one-stop breast cancer screenings performed in a comfortable, convenient environment. The program is committed to making this service available to all women. 

The Mammovan is both disabled- and wheelchair-accessible. The Mammovan is accredited by the American College of Radiology and is certified by the FDA to perform screening mammograms. The Mobile Mammography Program meets all the requirements of the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA).

If you represent a corporation, church, or civic group and wish to schedule a site visit with the Mammovan, please call 202.741.3274.

If you're a woman who would like an appointment to get your mammogram on the Mammovan, please call 202.741.3252.

Dedicated to providing area women with education and support, this self-contained mobile unit travels to corporate and community sites offering one-stop screening performed in a comfortable, convenient environment. The program is committed to making this service available to every woman, regardless of her ability to pay.
