October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the healthcare professionals at Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI), as well as the AMI Foundation, are marking the occasion with several very special events and free screening mammograms. The free mammograms are for uninsured women ages 40 and older with no current or previous breast issues.
The screening mammograms are available throughout October at all AMI locations in Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Ocean and Monmouth counties, with evening and weekend appointments also available. The program is made possible through the generous support of the AMI Foundation and Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey.
To schedule an appointment, please call (609) 677-XRAY (9729) or (609) 463-9500.
Girls Night Out
Wednesday, October 16 at 5-8 p.m
AMI Egg Harbor Township, 6529 Black Horse Pike
Most women probably don’t associate mammograms with fun, but AMI’s Girls Night Out events may well change all that. Held in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Girls Night Out incorporates things women love: pampering, food and drink, and spending quality time with friends.
The event will take place from 5-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at AMI Egg Harbor Township, with additional events in Vineland and Brick. Each will include screening mammograms, free mini chair massages and free nail polish change, light hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, as well as the opportunity to meet and interact with AMI’s female physicians, technologists and staff. All attendees will be entered in a drawing to win a free spa treatment. Space is limited for the free massages and nail polish change, both of which are available on a first come, first served basis.
Mammography screenings will be available by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call (609) 677-XRAY (9729).
“These events represent a ‘best of both worlds’ opportunity for women,” said Dr. Peggy Avagliano, head of women’s imaging at AMI. “They promise to be a fun and enjoyable night out, while at the same time empowering women to take charge of their body and their health.”
To RSVP for the event, please call (609) 568-9153. For more information, visit www.amifoundation.net/gno.
