RadNet, Inc. (NASDAQ: RDNT), a national leader in providing high-quality, cost-effective outpatient diagnostic imaging services, today announced that basketball legend and WNBA superstar Sheryl Swoopes will be a spokesperson for its nationwide cancer screening programs. Swoopes will emphasize the need for more convenient nationwide access to crucial cancer screening services. The most recent initiative is MammogramNow, RadNet’s launch of breast cancer screening services as a tenant in Walmart Supercenters in Delaware, Arizona, and California.

As an iconic figure in women's basketball, Sheryl Swoopes enjoyed an illustrious career, earning three Olympic gold medals and three Most Valuable Player awards in the WNBA, cementing her status as one of the greatest players of all time. Inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2017, Swoopes continues to inspire generations with her remarkable achievements, both on and off the court.

Swoopes has a personal connection to cancer and specifically breast cancer, having lost both of her aunts to the disease. RadNet and Swoopes will together support a movement towards greater health equity and collaborate on efforts to combat healthcare disparities. Swoopes' influence and advocacy can spark meaningful change in how communities approach preventive healthcare and population health screening.

“Growing up, Walmart was more than just a store to me—it was a part of my family's routine. My mom and aunts would take me along as they shopped. Looking back, I cannot help but think how different things might have been if screening services like RadNet’s MammogramNow had been available,” said Swoopes. “I lost two aunts to breast cancer. That personal connection fuels my passion for this collaboration. Even having that personal experience with cancer, I did not realize how little I knew about the importance of annual screenings. My basketball career has provided me with a platform to influence millions of people, and having seen firsthand the devastation cancer can bring, I am driven to ensure that others have access to early detection and life-saving preventive care.”

“This initiative not only extends convenient access to cutting-edge screening technologies, but also aligns perfectly with Sheryl’s commitment to health advocacy. We are making strides toward a healthier future for women,” said RadNet President and CEO Howard Berger, MD. “Together, we are bringing world-class healthcare professionals into the heart of our neighborhoods, ensuring that every woman has access to medical expertise and compassionate care.”

Providing advanced screening technologies represents a significant step toward democratizing healthcare access. Leveraging state-of-the-art hardware and artificial intelligence, RadNet’s initiative makes essential health services readily available to individuals in underserved communities.

“In addition to seeking groceries, household goods, and personal items at our stores, Walmart shoppers routinely fill their prescriptions. The opportunity to get a walk-in mammogram will give convenient access so that even busy women can be compliant with recommended screening standards,” said Andrea Harvey, Senior Manager of Everyday Services for Walmart. She added: “Together with RadNet, we selected locations where RadNet could service the additional imaging needs of our shoppers in situations where further evaluation is necessary.”

RadNet ensures the highest standards of care by employing board-certified radiologists and highly trained technologists to provide crucial breast screening services. These medical professionals bring a wealth of expertise and experience to every screening session, ensuring accurate interpretations and timely interventions when needed. With their dedication to excellence in patient care, RadNet's team of specialists plays a vital role in the early detection and prevention of breast cancer, further improving health outcomes for women everywhere.
