NIHD grateful for support during Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Northern Inyo Healthcare District would like to thank the following health care facilities, local businesses, and individual­s for supporting our Breast Cancer Awareness efforts, including our annual Moonlight Mammogram program and Eastern Sierra Cancer Alliance’s Community Pink Day. This year, our Diagnostic imaging team and these contributi­ons helped provide 56 busy women with after-hours mammograms. NIHD encourages all women and men to speak with their primary care physicians about annual cancer screenings and to remember that early detection helps save lives.
