Fort Hamilton Hospital hosts Pink Around The Square in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

September 29, 2017

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Fort Hamilton Hospital is hosting Pink Around The Square on Friday, October 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Courthouse Square, 101 High Street in Hamilton.

Visitors can enjoy refreshments from Chick-Fil-A and Pepsi, as well as pink vanilla ice cream from Flub’s.

Gift bags will be handed out while supplies last and you can enter for a chance to win prizes.

In addition to a health fair, physicians will provide breast health information and answer questions. Women will be able to schedule a mammogram at the event.

The City of Hamilton has declared October 6 as Hamilton Breast Cancer Awareness Day. At 12:30 p.m. Hamilton Mayor Pat Moeller will present a proclamation to Michael Mewhirter, president of Fort Hamilton Hospital, and Linda Reilman, MD, radiologist at Fort Hamilton Hospital at the event.

Fort Hamilton Hospital offers the latest advancement in 3D Mammography technology at its Kettering Health Network Breast Evaluation Center. 3D Mammography with Tomosynthesis provides extremely precise imagery, presenting a much clearer, higher resolution picture of the breast structure to the radiologist.

Kettering Breast Evaluation Centers are reminding women to take time and schedule their mammogram and take the “I WILL” challenge—and encourage women you care about to do the same. Early detection saves lives. Request a mammogram online, or call 1-800-373-2160.
