MARIETTA — The BelkGives on the Go Mobile Mammography Center, a 39-foot-long, state-of-the-art screening center on wheels, will stop at Belk stores in Marietta and Kennesaw during the week of March 17, to offer free, convenient mammogram screenings. Women age 40 and older with no breast concerns, who have not had a mammogram in the last 12 months and have a primary care physician are eligible by calling (855) 655-BMMC (2662) to schedule an appointment.

All screening exams are performed by Charlotte Radiology’s licensed, female mammography-certified technologists. A board-certified radiologist, specialized in breast imaging will interpret the mammogram. Confidential results will be sent to the patient and her primary care physician.

Belk, the nation’s largest privately operated department store, launched BelkGives on the Go Mobile Mammography in partnership with Charlotte Radiology. This mobile mammography center will bring convenient, digital screening and awareness to all Belk markets with the journey beginning in 232 stores throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland , North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia through January 2015.

Belk’s $6 million investment in this program marks the retailer’s deep commitment to women’s health issues and breast cancer education and is the company’s single largest charitable contribution to date. Belk is the only retailer of its kind to form a partnership alongside community and health organizations by extending breast cancer screening and increasing breast cancer awareness through its own operation.
