Everyone knows a mammogram can save a life. So why are so many women still not getting one? Mammograms can diagnose breast cancer at an earlier stage when treatment is more effective and prognosis more hopeful. Ultimately, mammograms can help save lives and avoid a crisis before it happens.
This May, HHC hospitals and health centers will host mammogram education events to urge women over 40 to schedule a mammogram this year. See our event schedule below, and don’t forget to stop by!
