Enfield, Conn., May 1, 2015 — In honor of Mother’s Day, Radiology Associates of Hartford (RAH) is having a breast cancer screening brunch to help support the important women in everyone’s lives. Connecticut still has the unlucky distinction of having the second highest incidence of breast cancer in the U.S. As with any cancer, early detection is key. Regular yearly screening mammograms are the best tool for catching breast cancer at its earliest and most treatable stage. This event aims to make getting a mammogram more accessible by offering weekend appointments from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 2 at RAH’s Enfield clinic – located at 9 Cranbrook Boulevard in Suite 102.
This event also makes the yearly health chore of getting a screening mammogram into a celebration of women’s health. In addition to offering state-of-the-art mammograms, RAH will be offering free made-to-order omelettes, mimosas, manicures, mini makeovers, professional bra fittings, blood pressure checks and goodie bags.
“Most women list a lack of time and anxiety about the results as the top reasons they skip their annual mammogram,” said Robert Perez, M.D. radiologist and breast imaging specialist at RAH. “Our hope is that by making getting a mammogram into a celebration more women will be inspired to be proactive about their health.”
Because of the number of women who attend, pre-registration is recommended for the event and can be made by calling 860-714-2724. For more information about the Mother’s Day Breast Cancer Screening Brunch or services available at RAH, visit www.rahxray.com or call 860-714-2724.
