The goal of the ECMC Foundation Mobile Mammography Unit (MMU) is to provide screening mammograms in areas where women have difficulty accessing healthcare, so that all women in WNY may benefit from mammography’s early detection capabilities.

Our ultimate goal is to provide lifelong breast health to all.

ECMC Foundation and its community partners, Dr. Vivian Lindfield/WNY Breast Health (WNYBH) team and The National Witness Project (TNWP), goal is to make a significant impact in increasing mammography screening and decreasing disparities faced by women in four target counties with significant gaps in breast cancer services and access to care: Allegany, Cattaraugus, Erie & Wyoming Counties. • Through this effort, culturally-competent, evidence-based breast health education, patient navigation, screening, transportation, interpreter services, and support will be provided for women who are medically underserved and who face disparities in seeking breast health care.

 Services will be provided by the Mobile Mammography Coach visiting these areas
