A life-saving message, 12 months a year
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, we encouraged every woman to prioritize her breast health by not delaying her annual mammogram. As Dr. Sardiña has said, breast cancer doesn’t quarantine. It’s important to return to your regular screening regimen, because early detection is still the closest thing we have to a cure for breast cancer. October may be over, but this is a life-saving message 12 months of the year.
Facebook Live Events
Throughout the month of October, three of our radiologists hosted Facebook Live Events covering important breast health topics:
- Alexander Sardiña, MD hosted Breast Cancer Doesn't Quarantine on September 30. Watch the replay.
- Andrea Parada, MD hosted Risk Factors on October 14. Watch the replay.
- Anjali Malik, MD hosted Early Awareness on October 28. Watch the replay.
We hosted a #MammoChat on Twitter where we partnered with Dr. Malik and others to talk about breast health and breast care. You can see the entire Tweetchat on our timeline.
