Breast Cancer

St. Barnabas Hospital Making Mammograms Mobile

by Veronica Volk

A Bronx hospital is taking mammograms on the road.  St. Barnabas rolled out its new mammography van and the Bronx Health Fair this morning.  Arlene Rivera is the specialty care manager for the new program.  Screening and educating women is especially important to her since her own mother has been battling the disease.

"She's actually finishing up her last year of treatment. That basically inspired me to get involved in breast cancer awareness."
