“We’re bringing the best equipment to the people and places where it’s needed most,” said Carlos A. Migoya, Jackson Health System CEO.

Jackson’s digital Mobile Mammogram Unit – the only one of its kind in the county – was on display Oct. 2 at the Stephen P. Clark Center, along with a pink Miami-Dade Police Department vehicle, also a pink Public Works and Waste Management garbage truck, and a pink Transit Metrobus.

Migoya was joined by Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, members of the Board of County Commissioners, Jackson Health System breast health physicians and staff, breast cancer survivors and activists to take part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the unit.
