October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it’s never too early or late to make healthy choices and take action to protect ourselves and our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends.
We are honored to have Shelly Crosson, MMS, PA-C and Nicola Nicholson, PA-C, MS from Mayo Clinic to join us. They will give us an educational presentation on breast cancer, and other underestimated conditions like HPV and abnormal Pap smears.
We want to remind you to make your health a priority and take care of yourself!
