City of Hope launches mobile cancer prevention, screening program

City of Hope is launching its new mobile cancer prevention and screening program into Southern California communities.

The program aims to address health inequities by featuring two mobile clinics with a full staff, including nurse practitioners, nurses, mammography technologists, and support staff. Mobile clinic clients will receive personalized screening recommendations based on a novel risk assessment and necessary tests. The mobile clinic assesses risk and screens for at least 15 different types of cancer and uses mammography technology for breast cancer screening.

If a mobile clinic client receives a positive finding from their screening, a nurse navigator will guide them through the diagnostic process and provide appropriate resources. Clients are not required to use City of Hope as their provider.
