Fauquier Health Thinks Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As part of Fauquier Health’s commitment to the fight against breast cancer, the health system is sponsoring a free physician’s lecture about breast cancer. The health system is also providing free screening mammograms for women who turn 40 this year.

Fauquier Health will host a workshop called “Breast Cancer Basics: Risk, Prevention, Screenings and Resources” on October 27, at 6:30 p.m. at Fauquier Hospital in the Sycamore rooms.

Speakers include surgeon John Williams, M.D., and radiologists Maria Pace, M.D., and Jennifer Wargo M.D., who will discuss all aspects of the disease and its treatment.

These lectures are part of a year-round series of physician lectures that Fauquier Health offers to the public free of charge. Fauquier Health is committed to educating the public about issues that are important to their health.

Fauquier Health is also offering free screening mammograms throughout the year to anyone who turns 40 in 2010. To schedule a free mammogram, contact call 540-316-5800.
