The free screenings are offered to females who are uninsured or underinsured, age 40 and older and are due for their annual screening mammogram and females who are 35 – 40 years of age and needing a baseline mammogram. Women with insurance can also receive a screening; they just need to bring their insurance card. Females seeking a mammogram must be able to walk up the stairs of the mobile unit and stand unassisted.
Please call (864) 675-4101 option 1 to schedule an appointment and request booking on the mobile unit at St. Philip’s. Appointments are required.

About St. Philip’s Episcopal Church
St. Philip's Episcopal Church was first established in 1914 as a mission church. Giving back to the
community is an important component of the church’s mission. St. Philip’s is one of seven
congregations founded for African-Americans in the Diocese of Upper South Carolina. St. Philip’s is
known as the “Miracle Church.” In 2002, the congregation, with the support of the Diocese of Upper South Carolina, began construction of a new sanctuary based on the Habitat for Humanity premise.
