A mobile clinic providing mammograms stopped in Duluth this week.

The unit coordinator, Dan Hockinson, said the clinic is important because many of the Native American communities are far from medical care. He said this unit brings the care to them.

"Some of them would not go out and get the screenings if we didn't come to them," said Hockinson. "We have saved several lives by early detection."

The SMSC Mobile Unit will be on the Fond Du Lac Reservation on August 13th and 14th.
