Making Strides Walk Against Breast Cancer, Free Screening Mammograms in October

By Press Release

OCEAN CITY — Oct. is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the healthcare professionals at Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI) are marking the occasion with two very special events and free screening mammograms for uninsured women ages 40 and older with no current or previous breast issues.
The screening mammograms are available throughout Oct. at all AMI locations in Atlantic and Cape May counties with evening and weekend appointments also available. The program is made possible through the generous support of the AMI Foundation.
To schedule an appointment, please call (609) 677-XRAY (9729) or (609) 463-9500.
The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Walk Against Breast Cancer will take place on Sun., Oct. 16 at 10 a.m. at 9th Street and the Boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ. Team AMI invites anyone to join them in this important and fun event.
According to the American Cancer Society, “Every step you take is personal, and every step will help people stay well and get well, find cures and empower communities to fight back against this disease.”

Most women probably don’t associate mammograms with fun, but AMI’s Girls Night Out on Tues., Oct. 18 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 Tues., Oct. 18 from 5-8 p.m. at AMI’s Galloway office, located at 44. E. Jimmie Leeds Road. 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.
