AMI Foundation Marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Special Events and Free Screening Mammograms

By Press Release

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the health care professionals at Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI), as well as the AMI Foundation, are marking the occasion with two 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, 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, Oct. 17 at AMI EHT

Most women probably don’t associate mammograms with fun, but AMI’s “Girls Night Out” may 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 Wednesday, Oct. 17 from 5 to 8 p.m. at AMI’s Egg Harbor Township office, located at 6529 Black Horse Pike. It 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).

“This event represents a ‘best of both worlds’ opportunity for women,” said Dr. Peggy Avagliano, head of women’s imaging at AMI. “It promises 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.
