October 2010 Just saw a video about the center in New York City
Video OPENS to a New Window
Posted 2/08 Joan and Sue from the LGBT community.
At the San Antonio Breast Cancer Conference, December 2000, I picked up a brochure describing services for women with disabilities.
This group provides free clinical breast exams and breast self exam education. They have an accessible exam room and a multi-positioning exam table.
I note that they refer "to a mammography service able to accomodate most women who use wheelchairs or who have difficulty standing".
This organization has a website which describes their services and they may be able to offer advice to women with disabilities who are NOT located in Berkeley, California.
Berkeley, CA center.
