Lucas County Health Center is offering women the opportunity to pamper themselves while learning about their health. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, LCHC’s Healthy University will be offering “Mammograms and Massages” every Tuesday from 2:30 – 4:30 PM. Massages will be provided by Amanda Coker of Healing Concepts Therapeutic Massage.
Women who schedule their screening mammograms during this event will be treated with a free chair massage provided by Amanda Coker of Healing Concepts Therapeutic Massage. All attendees will also be eligible to enter their name into a drawing for a variety of prizes, including a pink FitBit.
The American Cancer Society recommends that women 40 and over have an annual mammogram. Women should talk with their providers about their personal risk factors and make a decision about when to start getting mammograms or how often they should get them. Early detection is the best way to survive breast cancer and mammograms are a great tool for finding and fighting breast cancer early.
Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are recommended. To schedule your mammogram and massage, call LCHC’s Radiology Department at 641-774-3223.
This event is made possible by the 2016-2017 Healthy University Sponsors: Johnson Machine Works, Hy-Vee, Inc., Midwest Heritage Bank, Red Haw Family Medical Center, Community 1st Credit Union, Ameriprise Financial, Cater 2 U, ScreenTech, KIIC Radio, Ellis Greenhouse, Chat Mobility, Darrah Garbage, and Edward Jones.
