Mammography – The gold standard

Breast cancer is the most common cancer for American women, except for skin cancers, and women have a one in eight chance of developing it in their lifetime1. While breast cancer deaths have decreased, Black women are 40%2 more likely to die from breast cancer than White women. But when detected early, the five-year survival rate for localized breast cancer is 99%3.

Encourage your employees to schedule their $0 screening mammogram – Please share our Early Detection Matters flyer via print, email, or intranet.
