Event description

Description

October is breast cancer awareness month, and Northwest Health invites ladies in the community to gather girlfriends together and stop by the Pink Night between 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Oct. 11. This special event will feature guest speaker Dr. Christie Phelan, board-certified and fellowship-trained mammography radiologist, health and beauty pampering, a vendor fair, silent auction, awareness celebration, tours of imaging center and a “mammothon”.

The spa-like atmosphere helps ladies feel more comfortable in the hospital imaging setting and help relieve any anxiety associated with mammograms. There will also be tours of the breast center to help younger or first time ladies become familiar with the experience as well as the option of on the spot mammogram appointments that evening.

All women in the community are invited to attend this free event. Mammography Technicians will be on hand to explain how screening equipment works, walk guests through a typical patient experience highlighting some of the special amenities offered and answer any questions they may have.

It can be hard for ladies to find the time to take care of themselves, but mammograms are an essential part of women’s health care. So Northwest Health is removing barriers by offering discounted rates and after hours appointments. There is a $99 special on mammogram screenings during the month of October that is an all-inclusive price for those who do not have insurance coverage to help with the cost.

If a lady does not want a mammogram or has already had their recommended screening, they are still encouraged to attend to provide a support network for the warriors in pink.

NW Breast Imaging Center at Willow Creek offers 3-D mammography which provides earlier diagnosis of breast cancer and a reduction in call backs that 40 percent of women experience who have the traditional 2D mammograms. 3D mammography has been credited with catching breast cancer much earlier and as a consequence, saving lives and improving the quality of life for many area women. Early detection affords the best opportunity for a cure. To schedule a screening mammogram call (479) 757-4135. To get more information about the Pink Night, call (479) 757-1600.
