October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Laughlin Center for Women’s Health, Laughlin Memorial Hospital Volunteers, and Laughlin Health Care Foundation are supporting the effort by assembling 1000 packets which contain important information on good breast health and several attractive and useful gifts, pertinent to education about breast cancer. These packets will be available to women receiving mammograms during the month of October at Laughlin’s Center for Women’s Health, Greeneville’s first accredited Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. They will also be available at speaking engagements in the community.
For additional information about the free packets or to schedule a breast cancer awareness program, please contact Laughlin Health Care Foundation at 787.5117.
