Breast Cancer Awareness Month starts October 1st, 2017 and ends October 31st, 2017. The annual initiative raises awareness about breast cancer, educates men and women about prevention, celebrates survivors, and acknowledges men and women who have lost the fight against breast cancer. In addition to fundraisers and other events that support charities, health screenings are emphasized during the month.
Preventative Measures Saves Lives
Good health starts with preventative measures. Learning how to give yourself a self-examination and scheduling mammography services yearly is recommended. Diet and exercise also help with the prevention of many diseases. If you want to make sure that you’ve gotten enough vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in your diet, nutrition counseling is one service Dr. Wilburn of Genesis Women’s Health Services provides.
Women who are of childbearing age see their gynecologist for the first time. It is then that they start to see the importance of regular visits to Genesis Women’s Health Services. They establish a routine that lasts them through their menopausal years.
