Women Encouraged to Schedule Annual Mammogram during Event Dates
Good Samaritan Medical Center will offer a series of Treat Yourself Well events during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to help promote Women’s Health Education. Women who schedule their mammograms at the events will be treated to a relaxing environment with chair massages, refreshments, and more. The events will be held at the Women’s Imaging Center located at 15 Roche Brother’s Way, Suite 120, (One Washington Place), North Easton, MA on select dates throughout October.
Good Samaritan Medical Center Women’s Imaging Services hosts the latest technologies in breast imaging to allow for proper screening and diagnosis of every woman. “Having the best technology available to us increases our level of confidence when diagnosing and treating breast cancer,” said Susan Stafford, MD, FACR, Radiologist at Good Samaritan Medical Center. "The latest technologies coupled with our capable and caring staff represent our continued commitment to breast cancer diagnosis and treatment in the community."
“Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, following lung cancer, and statistics place the number of women who will develop breast cancer in their lives at one in eight. If we can catch these cancers early enough, we can extend the survival rate for our patients,” continued Dr. Stafford.
