CMH to host free breast health workshops / July 25, 2012
Breast cancer is the leading cancer among American women and second only to lung cancer in cancer deaths. More than two million women living in the U.S. have been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer. To educate women on important breast cancer topics Community Memorial Healthcenter (CMH) will be presenting free Breast Health Educational Workshops in July and August.

These workshops are open to women of all ages. Participants will learn about breast health education and breast cancer awareness, how to perform self breast exams, intervention and early detection, who is at risk, and how often to have a mammogram. Each participant will receive a free gift.
