Celebrating the strength of women with every mammography screening, Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Outpatient Imaging also makes those women’s lives a bit easier with two convenient location – in both Winston-Salem and Kernersville – and equally convenient hours, making it easier than ever to schedule this potentially life-changing appointment.
Early detection is still the best defense against breast cancer, and in honor of the beautiful occasion of Mother’s Day this month, the center will be holding “Mammos and Muffins” on both May 7 and May 14 at the Winston-Salem location – an event they have hosted for the past five years. Focusing on the generational importance of self-care, especially for those with a family history of breast cancer, Karen Howell, Mammography Supervisor, says that the staff frequently hears women explain they typically go for mammograms together with their mothers. That makes this event a perfect time to grab your mom, sister, aunt, or best friend, and schedule your mammograms on one of those May Saturdays.
On May 14, the Kernersville location will also be sponsoring Mammograms & More Wellness, where attendees can schedule a mammogram appointment, tour the center, visit with local vendors, and learn more about other available imaging services as well.
