Mobile Mammogram Unit Returns to GATS

For the fifth straight year The Landstar Health and Wellness pavilion at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas will feature a mobile mammogram unit to provide this possibly life saving health screening.

Thanks to the generosity of many individuals and companies, we were able to provide 49 mammograms in 2018 at no charge to those in need. This was the second highest total we have achieved since this effort began back in 2015.
