Pink Lifesaver

Too often, a woman's busy schedule makes it hard to keep a mammogram appointment. In fact, the American Cancer Society cites the top two reasons women give for not getting a mammogram are time and convenience.

The Pink Life Saver, the University of Colorado Hospital's first mobile mammography unit, is a clinic on wheels that provides breast cancer screening services to women in the metro area. The brightly decorated, 38-foot-long vehicle houses a workstation, waiting area and changing room.

This fall, the Pink Life Saver will be at two Be Colorado health screenings:

  • 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14, at the Center for Community, CU-Boulder. The van will be parked in lot 308.
  • 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, at the El-Pomar Center, UCCS. Van will be parked in the loading dock area of the building.

To make your appointment, call 720-848-1030. Walk-ins are also accepted.

Employees on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus may visit the Mammography department on the third floor of the Outpatient Pavilion to receive a mammogram. Walk-ins are accepted 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Health-screening appointments are still available. Take advantage of this opportunity for a free flu shot and full health screening (lipid profile, blood glucose, blood pressure, height, weight, and waist circumference). Make your appointment today.
