Cancer Screening Mobile Unit

The Southeast Regional Health Screening Program is a rural-based program that uses a mobile medical vehicle to perform vital health screenings.

The program provides underserved residents the opportunity to receive the cancer screening services they need, when they need them. The program specifically targets citizens in Barbour, Coffee, Covington, Dale, Geneva, Henry, Houston and Pike counties in Alabama, and those living in southwest Georgia and northwest Florida who have limited or no access to regular breast, prostate and colorectal cancer screenings.
The 40-foot mobile medical vehicle is equipped with a screening mammography suite, an education area and a laboratory. Screening for breast, prostate and colorectal cancers can be done easily, and if detected in the earliest stages treatment options are greater.
