7th Annual Blush Lunch

The GW Mobile Mammography Program—The Mammovan—began in 1996 with a singular, ambitious
goal: to make life-saving, early detection of breast cancer possible for all women throughout the
metropolitan Washington, D.C. area, regardless of their ability to pay. A key goal of the program is to
aid in early detection to ensure the best possible health outcomes for women identified as having breast
cancer. This self-contained mobile unit travels to corporate and community sites and provides breast
cancer screening to more than 2,500 women annually in a comfortable, convenient environment.
The Mammovan helps to break down both access and time constraint barriers by reaching women
where they live and work, including underserved communities without existing facilities. The
Mammovan provides state-of-the-art screenings (including digital mammography) at 160 sites
throughout the D.C. region.
The Mammovan's work is made possible by the generous support of corporate, foundation, and
individual donors who share in the program's mission to both prevent and provide early detection for
