At this lecture, Brebach will discuss mammograms, callbacks, diagnostic imaging and biopsies. This free lecture called, “Breast Imaging – Screening and Diagnostics” will be conducted from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20 at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center – Huntley, 10450 Algonquin Road.
In addition, Dr. Dudley Brown Jr. and Dr. Alissa Erogbogbo with Centegra Primary Care, will present, “Minimally Invasive Hysterectomies – Laparoscopic Hysterectomy” from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26 at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center – Huntley, 10450 Algonquin Road.
