The first one was held on October 8 at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging Department and the second one on October 16 at Geneva General Hospital’s Women’s Health Services,

Employees were able to tour the facilities, meet the staff and radiologists, learn about the importance of getting an annual mammogram and as well as schedule their mammogram if they were age 40 or older. Educational displays were provided at each event as well as give-aways and refreshments.
