Mobile Mammography Program
“On behalf of SBH Health System, I wish to express our deepest gratitude to the Beth C. Tortolani Foundation as it celebrates it's 20th year.”
The Beth C. Tortolani Foundation is a critical supporter of SBH's Mobile Mammography Program which provides breast health education, screening, treatment, and follow-up services to women throughout the Bronx regardless of their ability to pay or qualify for insurance. By providing direct access to timely screening and educational services that are culturally appropriate, our program strives to limit the incidence of breast cancer among women who are living in the Bronx. With the Tortolani Foundation's assistance, our program reaches more than 900 women annually.
