Early detection is key


Getting screened on a regular basis is the best way for women to lower their chances of dying from breast and cervical cancer. Early detection is the key to survival. In an effort to promote regular breast screenings, the Department of State Health Services, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service of Austin County and Bellville St. Joseph Health Center sponsored a health and wellness educational program ‘Friend to Friend’ Jan. 24 in Bellville, Texas at the local DSHS office. Eighteen of 24 participants received orders for a mammogram from “The Rose”. While at the event, all participants were educated of the importance of the exam and the health benefits of it on a regular basis. With the assistance of the ”The Rose” and their mobile unit, all participants will receive their annual examination via their mobile unit during the month of February.
