Community Breast Health Program

Clinical Services

Since its inception in 2011, the Mammography Art Initiative has vastly expanded its fundraising efforts to accommodate our rapidly growing clinical programs. Because we have received an overwhelming amount of support for our breast health education and clinical care efforts, we have been able to broaden our clinical services. Now, we are aiming to encompass a wider variety of women’s health issues, beyond just breast health, for underserved women in Miami-Dade County. 

Using funds raised through the Mammography Art Initiative’s Annual Art Show, HWCOM sponsors services at various imaging centers throughout Miami-Dade County, including the following:

  • Baptist Health South Florida Outpatient Centers
  • South Miami Center for Women & Infants
  • Nilza Kallos at Breast Health Center and Diagnostic Ultrasound
  • Jackson Memorial Hospital Taylor/Chaplin Breast Health Center

 

Linda Fenner 3D Mobile Mammography Center

If you are a woman living in Miami-Dade County, uninsured, over 40, and do not have a breast lump or breast pain, you are probably eligible. Contact the mobile mammography center at 305-348-PINK (7465) to go over your eligibility.

In order to identify women in need of sponsored mammograms, we work closely with the following organizations:

  • The Green Family Foundation NeighborhoodHELP
  • The FIU HWCOM Mobile Health Center
  • UHI Community Care Clinic
  • Various health fairs and other community outreach events. 

Any individuals who do not meet these criteria are referred directly to the Jackson Taylor Breast Health Center for care. In addition, the Mammography Art Initiative works in close partnership with Pamela Burnett and The Beautiful Gate, a cancer support and resource center based in Miami, to provide additional services to women in need.

If you or someone you know could benefit from our education and/or breast health services, please contact:
