The Gritman Foundation has a dedicated team and several programs that can help our patients and their loved ones live better, healthier lives.
Early detection saves lives, and regular mammograms are the best way to detect breast cancer early. Bosom Buddies provides free screening mammograms to local women who are unable to pay for the screening on their own. The screening mammograms are available to women who receive their medical care in Latah County. A physician’s referral is required.
To participate in Bosom Buddies, please contact your physician or call the Women’s Imaging Center at 208-882-5377.
Bosom Buddies is made possible through the Pink Tea, Pink Cocktail and generous financial gifts by businesses and individuals in our community.
