Saturday Mammogram Parties Offered This Fall


Allegan General Hospital (AGH) recognizes mammography as an important tool for detecting breast cancer early on, helping to save lives. In an effort to encourage women to get their screening mammogram, AGH is once again offering Saturday morning Mammogram Parties this fall.

“We want to take the stress and anxiety out of having a mammogram by creating a relaxing and fun environment,” says Arnie Cook, breast health navigator and radiology supervisor at AGH. “We encourage ladies to schedule their mammogram with a girlfriend, coworker, sister, or mother.”

Each Mammogram Party will include a health education, refreshments, and an annual screening mammogram.

Mammogram Parties will be offered on the following Saturdays, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. - September 15, October 20 and November 17. A physician referral is not required to sign up; however, mammogram appointments are required.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call AGH’s Radiology department at (269) 686-4210.
