Novant Health UVA Health System will host Ladies’ Night Out events in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This event is a breast cancer awareness event designed for women to receive annual mammogram screenings, learn about breast health and enjoy relaxation activities and shopping. The events will be held from 5:30 to 8:00 p. m. on Thursday, Oct. 18, at Prince William Medical Center and Thursday, Oct. 25, at Haymarket Medical Center.
Attendees will have an opportunity to shop for jewelry and accessories, try the latest makeup trends, and sample appetizers and “mocktails.” Guests will also have a chance to receive complimentary chair massages and win prizes.
“At Novant Health UVA Health System, our commitment to expanding women’s health services and awareness of the importance of mammograms is year-round, not just in October,” said Stephen Smith, M.D., president and COO of Prince William Medical Center and Haymarket Medical Center. “During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are proud to demonstrate our commitment to women’s health with the addition of 3D mammography now available at Prince William Medical Center.”
Screening mammograms and 3D mammograms will be available at both Ladies’ Night Out events. This lifesaving technology supports early detection of breast cancer for women and is new technology added to Prince William Medical Center on Oct. 4. No physician order is required for women 40 years of age and older with no prior breast health issues, and most insurance is accepted. Financial assistance may be available for the uninsured and underinsured. Additional health screenings, including BMI, blood pressure and A1C, will also be available.
“We are excited to offer women in our communities the opportunity to get their annual mammogram done in a relaxing environment and hopefully to reduce any fears associated with breast screening for some women,” said Heather Aram, vice president service line and ambulatory development, Novant Health UVA Health System. “These events create a friendly atmosphere for women to gather with friends, neighbors and family to shop, eat and be pampered, all while getting their screening mammograms.”
