COOKEVILLE – The staff at the Women’s Center at Cookeville Regional has a spot reserved for moms on Friday, May 6, at their annual “Mams 4 Moms” event. From 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. mothers may schedule an appointment for a mammogram and free bone density heel screening.
This is the sixth year for “Mams 4 Moms.” The Women’s Center continues to grow and serve patients in the Upper Cumberland region and surrounding regions.
“Early detection is key in detecting breast cancer. So when moms show up for this event, they are not only giving themselves a gift by taking care of their health, but they are giving a gift to their families as well.”
“This event is the Friday before Mother’s Day, and we enjoy seeing all the moms who come in for this special event that’s all about them, ” said Stephanie Jennings, chief mammographer at the Women’s Center. “Moms are busy. They are taking care of everyone around them and sometimes they put their health to the side. Early detection is key in detecting breast cancer. So when moms show up for this event, they are not only giving themselves a gift by taking care of their health, but they are giving a gift to their families as well. If you know a mom, whether it’s your own mom or perhaps a sister, a grandmother, niece or a friend bring her with you, or encourage her to come get a mammogram at this event. And if you’re a mom, treat yourself.”
The Women’s Center at Cookeville Regional is the only accredited breast program in the Upper Cumberland and the only breast imaging center in the region to earn the American College of Radiology’s Breast Imaging Center of Excellence status. The Women’s Center also offers bone density testing, considered the most accurate method in the diagnosis of osteoporosis.
