Nevada Health Centers operates the Mammovan, a mobile mammography van that provides convenient access to mammography services to women.

The Mammovan began operations in 2000 and was initially made possible by a grant secured by former U.S. Rep. John Ensign, R-Nev., and former first lady of Nevada, Dema Guinn.

Nevada Health Centers has been able to continue to operate the Mammovan thanks to generous donors and grant funding.

It was one of six organizations to receive a grant from the Prevent Cancer Foundation. The grant was awarded in support of the Mammovan Program and will be used to meet the mammography screening needs of women throughout Nevada.
