CLEARFIELD – Currently, one in eight women has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Adagio Health urges women to learn more about breast cancer screening.
Adagio Health will hold a Customer Appreciation Day on Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at its office, located at 1036 Park Avenue Ext., Clearfield. Guests can meet the Adagio Health medical staff, as well as Darlene Rowles, imaging supervisor, RT(R)(M), Penn Highlands Clearfield, who will be on hand to answer questions about breast cancer screening and early detection.
All are welcome to come and learn more about screening services offered by Adagio Health. Guests will also enjoy refreshments and raffles.
Adagio Health accepts most insurance plans. For those without insurance, a charge can be on a sliding fee scale based on income and family size. No cost breast and cervical cancer screening – including mammograms – is available to eligible women. Call 814-765-9677 for information or appointments.
Adagio Health recommends annual mammograms for women over the age of 40. However, women should begin having clinical breast exams at the age of 20 and subsequently as directed by their health care provider. Early detection leads to saving lives and more options for treatment.
Adagio Health has been serving women and families in western Pennsylvania since 1971. Each year, the agency reaches more than 150,000 people in 23 counties of western Pennsylvania through healthcare, preventive health education and nutrition programs.
Funding for breast and cervical cancer screening is provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s HealthyWoman program and the Pittsburgh Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
