WOW to offer low cost

mammograms

The WOW, Wellness on Wheels machine, offers mammograms throughout Glynn and surrounding counties. Operated by the Southeast Georgia Health System, it is staffed by female mammography technologists specially trained to perform breast imaging, and all mobile unit mammograms are read by the same group of radiologists who review Breast Care Center mammograms. Most insurances are accepted and financial assistance is available to patients who qualify.

It is funded by a grant from the Coastal Georgia Affiliate of Susan G. Komen. Mammograms require a physicians order. For more information about the Komen grant and low or no-cost mammograms for uninsured or low-income persons, call 912-466-5235.
