October is “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” – a great time for Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics to be hosting another free Women’s Health Event. All women in the community are invited to a forum of learning and celebration of women’s health on Saturday, October 29, 2016 from 8 a.m. until noon at Mason General Hospital’s Main (south) Entrance.
The Event features free digital mammography screenings to the first 50 qualifying women who are uninsured or underinsured for mammograms. This free event is funded by the Karen Hilburn Breast and Cervical Cancer Fund; the Washington Breast, Cervical and Colon Health Program; and Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Puget Sound.
