St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor hosts Breast Health Awareness Evening
Hospital to provide breast health activities, ‘mammograms in the moonlight’ and more

Ann Arbor, Mich. – St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor’s Breast Health Services is hosting a breast health awareness evening on Thursday, October 24 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. The event is free and open to the public.

The event will kick off with a panel of experts speaking on the latest breast health treatments and technologies. Women can schedule their regular mammogram to take place during this time and be pampered with a complimentary mini chair massage and "mocktail." Representatives highlighting various services will be on hand, including a nurse navigator, hair stylist and certified mastectomy fitter.

“We want to empower the community to take charge of their health,” says Tari Stull, MD, medical director, Breast Health Services, St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor. “And we are doing this in a way that hopefully takes away some of the fear that can come with the breast cancer screening process.”
