In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Guthrie hospitals will offer appointments on three Saturdays in October in order to make it more convenient for women to receive this important screening.
Saturday appointments are available on Oct. 13, 20 and 27 at Guthrie Corning Hospital in Corning, N.Y, Guthrie Towanda Memorial Hospital in Towanda, Pa., Guthrie Troy Community Hospital in Troy, Pa. and Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa.
The Guthrie Breast Imaging Center recommends yearly mammograms for women age 40 and older. Beginning mammograms at age 40 creates the best chance for early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. For an appointment, call 866-Guthrie.
