Beebe Medical Center’s Tunnell Cancer Center Offering Free Breast Health Forum September 30 in Dagsboro

by Dave on September 14, 2010

Beebe Medical Center’s Tunnell Cancer Center is offering a free breast health forum on Thursday, September 30, in partnership with Dagsboro Church of God, 32224 Dupont Blvd., Rt. 113 S., from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the church.

Partnerships with businesses, organizations, churches, and community groups help spread the message that early detection saves lives. Mammograms and clinical breast exams are important diagnostic tools to identify breast abnormalities.

Clinical breast exams will be available on-site along with breast health education. For those who qualify, referrals for no-cost mammograms will be offered the same afternoon.

All women 18 and older should have a clinical breast exam, and all women 40 years and older should have a yearly mammogram.

Call 302-645-3169 or 302-645-3100, ext. 2724 to register for the clinical breast exam.

This initiative called SOS², Sharing Our Stories, Saving Our Sisters, is funded by a grant from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Philadelphia Affiliate.

Beebe Medical Center is a not-for-profit community medical center with a charitable mission to encourage healthy living, prevent illness, and restore optimal health with the people residing, working, or visiting in the communities we serve.
