Crouse Hospital invites you to do something good for yourself by bringing your friends and family to a free ladies night out featuring mammograms and more on Wednesday, March 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Avenue. Open to the public, the event is free with free parking, but pre-registration is requested by calling 315/472-2464. Each guest will receive a free gift, and be treated to hors d’oeuvres, desserts, yoga, Reiki, massages, beauty consults and more, including a special presentation titled “Mammography Screening: What’s New, What’s Now, What’s Coming.”
At 7 p.m. Stephen Montgomery, MD, medical director of the Crouse Breast Health Center and Syracuse’s first Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, will begin the presentation. Dr. Montgomery will conclude his talk by joining with Crouse’s breast health nurse navigators to answer questions from the audience.
The purpose of the evening is to educate women about the importance of mammograms in a relaxed and enjoyable setting. The Crouse Breast Health Center’s nurse navigators and mammography technologists will be available throughout the evening providing education, answering questions and scheduling mammogram appointments at the Crouse facility. Anyone who signs up that evening will be entered into a drawing for one of several gift cards. Representatives from the local Cancer Services Program will also be on hand, providing information on how to obtain free mammograms.
The March 28 program is made possible through grant funding provided by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure – Central New York foundation.
