BRISTOL, TN (WJHL) – October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Wellmont is partnering with Belk to offer women in our community a convenient way to go and get their annual mammogram.
The following is press release from Wellmont:
The Wellmont Health Coach will provide digital mammograms by Belk in The Pinnacle shopping development from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6.
The event will be held as a way to recognize the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Caregivers aboard the health coach will file claims with each individual’s health insurance carrier, which typically covers this test at 100 percent as a preventive measure.
Space is limited, so people are required to register. To secure a spot, please call 1-844-OnCoach (662-6224).
The health coach is a 40-foot-long medical office on wheels that brings Wellmont Health System’s services to communities it serves in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. The vehicle provides an avenue for caregivers to identify health risks earlier, when conditions can be more easily and effectively treated.
