Methodist Fremont Health Partnership Brings Mammogram Coach to Costco Workers

Published: Dec. 19, 2019

While women may have to travel to a hospital to receive a mammography exam, employees at Lincoln Premium Poultry (LPP) were able to just step outside earlier this month.

Through a partnership with Methodist Fremont Health, LPP was able to bring the Methodist Mobile 3D Mammography coach to its Costco facility in Fremont on Dec. 5. With this opportunity, 20 women were able to receive mammograms.

“Women tend to take care of their families first and put their own health care lower on the priority list,” said Jill Gossett, community health and wellness coordinator at Methodist Fremont Health. “Bringing the mobile mammogram coach to the work site took some barriers away and allowed ladies to complete a mammogram while at work.”
