BOZEMAN DEACONESS HEALTH SERVICES OFFERS MAMMO DAY

OCTOBER 9, 2013
To mark National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Bozeman Deaconess Health Services is designating October 17th as Mammo Day to promote the importance of getting regular mammograms. Mammograms can identify breast cancer in its earliest stages, when chances of successful treatment are greatest.

Mammo Day stations will be located throughout the Bozeman Deaconess campus. Each station will have educational materials about breast cancer awareness, self-exams, potential risk factors, recommended screening guidelines, and applications for the Greater Gallatin United Way/Bozeman Deaconess Mammogram Project, which can assist women who are uninsured or under-insured pay for this test. Look for the pink balloons.

Additionally, staff from the Bozeman Deaconess Health Information Center will be providing the same information and applications for the Mammogram Project at four locations in Bozeman during October, as follows:
