Marshfield Clinic’s Mobile Screening Unit delivers breast cancer and bone density screenings monthly to rural Wisconsin residents that otherwise would not have easy access to the services.
For the past two decades, national breast cancer death rates have dropped, possibly due to earlier disease detection and improved treatment options. According to American Cancer Society estimates, more than 230,000 women in the U.S. are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
