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.

“Staff were very excited and proud to have the opportunity to educate their fellow colleagues about the importance of getting an annual mammogram ; especially since one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime “ commented Jeff Fultz, director of diagnostics.
