Family Health Care Promotes Breast Cancer Awareness Month

By Natasha Robinson, MPCA Communications Specialist

Family Health Care is contributing to breast cancer awareness by promoting early detection at their Baldwin and Cadillac sites during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

As part of promoting early detection, anyone who gets screened this month will be entered into a raffle for a basket of goodies worth $40.

Family Health Care offers mammography services at its Baldwin and Cadillac sites, and they are using this month to campaign for patient and staff awareness. They have set up tables in the lobby with informational materials, self-check cards, and pink freebies.

“Annual screenings for breast cancer is one of the best ways to ensure early detection and treatment. Our centers participate with many insurance plans and Breast and Cervical Cancer Control programs.  We also have a sliding fee program if there is no insurance,” said Terri Vanias, executive assistant/facilities manager. “We do our best to promote prevention and take advantage of national campaigns like this one to keep our patients healthy!”

Staff are dressing in pink this month, and have launched fundraisers as part of their continuous support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Thirty-four Michigan Health Centers provide quality, comprehensive, affordable primary and preventive care to more than 600,000 Michigan residents at over 200 delivery sites across the state. Their doors are open to all, regardless of insurance status or income level, and their services range from medical care, to dental care, to behavioral health care, and beyond.
