To bring awareness to breast cancer and other preventive health measures for women, the Adams County Regional Medical Center (ACRMC) is hosting a women’s health day on Saturday, October 22nd, from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
The women’s health day will take place at ACRMC at 230 Medical Center Drive in Seaman, Ohio, where mammogram services, low-cost comprehensive blood screenings, bone density, and blood pressure screenings will take place. In addition, the Ohio State University is providing an inflatable colon display for attendees to enjoy. It includes graphical examples of a healthy colon, various colon issues, and stages of colon cancer. Guided walking or rolling tours led by local health professionals will help explain the importance of early screening and detection of colon health issues.
“Empowering our community with the tools they need to lead a healthy lifestyle and increasing access to preventative care is essential to creating a healthier community here in Adams and Brown counties, and it is a fundamental part of our mission,” said Rachel Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer of ACRMC.”
