The Erie County Medical Center Mobile Mammography Unit will visit several Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority properties and other sites for testing.

The unit is a joint project of the ECMC Lifeline Foundation, the Buffalo Sabres Alumni and First Niagara Bank Financial Group. It was introduced in July with the goal of testing inner-city and rural women who may not otherwise have access to breast cancer screening services.

A doctor's prescription for a mammogram and appointments are required. Women may call (855) Go-4-PINK or (855) 464-7465.

Women who do not have a primary care physician may obtain information on how to get a prescription at the mobile unit or through the toll-free number.

The unit will hold following sessions:

. 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. today at Frederick Douglas Towers, Clinton Street and Jefferson Avenue.

. 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 27 Commodore Perry Homes, Seneca Street and Michigan Avenue.
