CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Mercy Health’s breast center is making it easier for women to schedule and get mammograms during the month of May.

Mercy Health Eastgate Breast Center is hosting mammography programs called ‘MammoGLAM’ where women can schedule their annual mammogram as well as enjoy light refreshments, cocktails and gift bags.

MammoGLAM will be every Thursday in the month of May, which is Women’s Health Month.

Imaging Supervisor Theresa Siemer says that MammoGLAM was created to encourage women to attend important health screenings like mammograms.

“We get it! Women are busy,” says Siemer. “Couple that with the uncertainty of the last few years, and it’s not surprising to find that many women postponed their annual mammogram.”

Mammograms, which are X-rays of the breast, are the best way to detect breast cancer in the early stages, according to Mercy Health.

“Remember, when it comes to breast cancer, the earlier the diagnosis, the better the outcome,” says Siemer. “I hope you’ll consider joining us at MammoGLAM, an event that promises to be enjoyable and can give you the peace of mind that comes with having your screening.”

The MammoGLAM will be located at the Eastgate Breast Center at 601 Ivy Gateway, Suite 2400, Cincinnati, OH 45235.

Mercy Health is also providing mobile mammography screening programs at a variety of locations. The mobile screenings take about 15 minutes to complete.
