2018 Girls’ Night Out Events Focus on Friendship and Health

According to the National Cancer Institute, Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women after skin cancer. Mammograms can detect breast cancer early, possibly before it has spread. At the Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health, women are encouraged to begin receiving annual screening mammograms at the age of 40 as a benchmark.

To encourage women to put their health first, the Center invites women to gather their female friends and enjoy a Girls’ Night Out scheduled on Thursday, October 4 or Tuesday, October 23, 2018, from 5-7 pm. Mammograms will be offered as well as chair massages, osteoporosis screenings, prizes, and more.

“Women are often each other’s support system through life,” said Andrea Bertram, Operations Director, Women’s Health and Cancer Services at Evangelical Community Hospital. “These Girls’ Night Out events are designed to allow women the opportunity to take part in an important breast cancer screen, while enjoying the company of friends. So, gather your besties and make a focus on health fun for everyone.”

To schedule an appointment during one the upcoming Girls’ Night Out events, call 570-522-4206.
