Beaufort Memorial Presents
The Producers of Your Breast Health (Starring YOU!)
To encourage women to put their health center stage, a cast of Beaufort Memorial healthcare professionals will present a free breast care program on Wednesday, November 6, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the theater at Sun City’s Magnolia Hall.
Catherine Salkowitz, a Sun City resident and breast cancer survivor, will join the cast as narrator.
The presentation is titled “The Producers” to emphasize the need for women to serve as “co-producers”
of their own breast health.
“You can’t just get a mammogram once a year and think you’re done with your responsibility for your breast health,” said Beaufort Memorial Breast Care Coordinator Amy Luce, who will be among several supporting “cast members” participating in the Sun City event. “There are lots of other things you can do to keep your breasts healthy or at least catch breast cancer early when it’s most treatable.”
- Monthly self-exams and visually checking for changes in your breasts
- Updating your doctor about any family members who have been newly diagnosed with cancer
- Exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet
The program will be presented in “acts” that will cover everything from understanding your risks to recommended screenings. In addition to Luce, a nurse navigator who helps guide women diagnosed through their treatment options, the cast will include BMH physicians, nutritionists and exercise experts.
At the end of the presentation, the entire ensemble of healthcare professionals will be available to answer questions.
The program is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To register, click here or call (843) 522-5585.
