NMC hosts Breast Party Ever

The Covington News - - LOCAL - BRYAN FAZIO bfazio@cov­news.com

A group of women got a chance to avoid the “Booby Trap” in an af­ter­noon of learn­ing about Breast Cancer aware­ness and preven­tion pro­vided by New­ton Med­i­cal Cen­ter and Breast Pa­tient Nav­i­ga­tor Wendy Hank­ins, RN, CBPN-IC.

The day was full with learn­ing the proper way to per­form a self breast exam, the im­por­tance of reg­u­lar clin­i­cal breast ex­ams and the need for an­nual mam­mo­grams. Sev­eral of the at­ten­dees had al­ready been to the di­ag­nos­tic cen­ter, while oth­ers were fa­mil­iar­iz­ing them­selves with the fa­cil­ity.

“I was in­ter­ested in see­ing all the things they have to of­fer,” Grace Lloyd said.

In ad­di­tion to the ed­u­ca­tional ses­sions, the women also had a chance to nosh on snacks, re­ceive gift bags and win door prizes.

Staff mem­bers, such as Shona Fisher, depart­ment man­ager of the Women’s Di­ag­nos­tic Cen­ter of New­ton Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Melody Fisher, in­struc­tor, and sched­uler Christy Prin­tiss were avail­able to sched­ule mam­mo­gram ap­point­ments.
