Making Mammography History | 2015 Timelines: La Maestra History

La Maestra Family Clinic rolls out San Diego County’s first ever Mobile Mammography Coach in October 2015, in partnership with Community Health Imaging Centers and with major sponsorship from Susan G. Komen San Diego. The event, attended by Mayor Kevin Faulconer and organizations involved in the fight against breast cancer, features testimonials by survivors who were able to access early detection through La Maestra’s breast cancer education and screening programs and became breast cancer promotoras.

The coach, staffed by a culturally and linguistically competent team, is equipped with state-of-the-art full-field digital mammography equipment and 3-D Tomosynthesis. Additional support for the coach and numerous screening events throughout the county is provided by the American Cancer Society, San Diego Chargers, San Diego Gas & Electric, Walmart, the Kroger Foundation and KyXy FM and Energy 103 FM radio.
