MyMichigan Medical Center breast cancer screening Oct. 8

ALPENA — As the leading breast health provider in the region, MyMichigan Medical Center Alpena is hosting a special breast cancer screening event from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 8. During the event, MyMichigan will offer extended mammogram hours, as well as special give-a-ways.

“It is important that women, beginning at the age of 40, get their annual mammogram,” said Bonnie Goff, R.N., B.S.N., C.N.-B.N., breast nurse navigator, MyMichigan Health. “We are offering special screening times to offer women a more convenient time to schedule their mammogram and all our mammograms utilize the 3D technology.”

With 3D mammography, breast cancer can be detected at even earlier stages, reducing the rates of breast cancer deaths.

MyMichigan Health recommends a yearly mammogram because it’s the only test shown to reduce breast cancer deaths. Mammograms can detect cancer early, when it’s most treatable. This improves odds of survival and can help patients avoid extensive treatment.

Registration is required as appointments are limited. To schedule a mammogram during the Oct. 8 event, or for financial assistance to obtain a screening, call 989-837-9054. A provider’s order is needed, and insurance will be billed for the mammogram. For more information, visit www.mymichigan.org/breast.

MyMichigan Health, a nonprofit health system headquartered in Midland, is a leader in providing award-winning, high-quality care to the 25-county region it serves. With Medical Centers in Alma, Alpena, Clare, Gladwin, Midland, Mt. Pleasant, Sault Ste. Marie and West Branch, MyMichigan also has affiliations with Medical Centers in St. Ignace and Mackinac Island.
