Centegra Health System’s nationally recognized breast health program underscores the importance of early detection and urges women to stay ahead of breast cancer.
Women are encouraged to attend a Mammo Monday event on their own or bring their mothers, daughters, sisters and friends to a special, private setting to take control of their breast and bone health. Offerings include mammograms, bone density screenings, free expert bra fittings and light snacks.
While a physician order is not needed for a mammogram, a physician order is needed for a bone density screening. To schedule an appointment, call 815-334-5566 or visit centegra.org/mammo for more details. Insurance will be billed. Financial assistance is also available.
Upcoming Mammo Mondays will be offered at the following locations and times:
- 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, May 2 at Centegra Gavers Breast Center
- 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, May 9 at Centegra Hospital-McHenry
- 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, May 16 at Centegra Health Center-Huntley
The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women 40 and older to maintain breast health and as a proven way to detect breast cancer in its earliest stage. Centegra is dedicated to maintaining the health and wellness of women in the community and celebrates the commitment women make to breast health.
