Mammos ‘Til Midnight Extended hours provided for screening mammogramsOct 15, 2019
“There are times when life gets so busy that we forget to take care of our own health,” said Chris Locke, Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett chief executive officer. “That’s why we are excited to offer Mammos ‘Til Midnight. In addition to providing women with a convenient, after-hours time for their mammogram, this event gives women the opportunity to relax and enjoy a girls’ night out.”
According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. However, early detection through mammogram screenings, increased public awareness of breast cancer and improved treatments have helped reduce the rate of death from breast cancer in the United States. Mammogram screenings can detect breast cancer when it is smaller and more confined to the breast, allowing the cancer to be treated more easily.
