Schedule your fall mobile mammogram today

Each year, The Rose offers on-site screening mammograms to female HISD employees who meet certain criteria.

The last few dates in July are already booked solid, but seven new dates have been added for the fall, starting on Sept. 9 at Lee High School and extending through Oct. 30 at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center.
