Think Pink: Mamogram Event at Elmwood Hills

Elmwood Hills Healthcare Center in Blackwood, NJ recently held a community-wide Mammogram Event, featuring the state-of-the-art Dr. Jan Astin Mobile 3-D Mammography Van.

On Friday, June 21, scores of women from the surrounding community came to Elmwood Hills to access the Dr. Jan Astin Mammography Van’s state-of-the-art 3-D imaging. The event, co-sponsored by the Ami Foundation, had been heavily publicized well in advance, which generated the large turnout.

“We’re so excited to offer this important resource to the community,” said Karen DeCecco, who serves as Elmwood Hills’ Community Liaison. “Elmwood Hills is all about promoting healthier communities, and this event was a very effective way to accomplish that!”

The compelling theme of the event was: “Be Smart. Be Safe. Get Tested.”
