Enjoy free food, massages during mammogram event

Women who have never had a mammogram are invited to undergo their first one during a special event designed to feel more like a trip to the spa than a visit to the doctor’s office. Adventist Midwest Health invites “first timers” to enjoy a free catered breakfast or lunch, free chair massages and lessons on breast self-exams before or after their mammogram.

“Going to get your first mammogram can be a frightening, intimidating experience,” said Sandy Mueller, technical manager of Adventist Midwest Health’s DuPage Imaging Center. “If we can provide a welcoming environment, where women are surrounded and supported by other first-timers, maybe we can encourage women to come give mammography a try.”

Mammography screening remains the best available method to detect breast cancer early. Along with performing monthly self breast exams, getting annual clinical breast exams and obtaining a risk assessment from a physician, undergoing regular mammography screenings starting at age 40 is an integral part of practicing good breast health.

Adventist Midwest Health's “first timers” event takes place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 19 at the following locations:

  • Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, medical office building, 396 Remington Boulevard,
  • Adventist GlenOaks Hospital, 701 Winthrop Ave., Glendale Heights,
  • DuPage Imaging Center, 908 N. Elm, suite 404, Hinsdale,
  • Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital, 5101 S. Willow Springs Road, La Grange.

Call (630) 856-7525 for an appointment. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
