Mammography Accessibility Project resources

The purpose of the directory is to better inform Oregon women with disabilities of the accessibility/usability features of their area mammography facilities. The information will assist women with disabilities to better select facilities based on their abilities and/or prepare for their upcoming mammography exam. 

The facilities featured in this Directory agreed to participate in a free, voluntary, on-site accessibility assessment conducted by Oregon Office on Disability and Health (OODH) staff. To date, OODH has assessed approximately 50% of the 109 mammography facilities in the state.
