Ellis Fischel Mammothon
As part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Ellis Fischel Cancer Center will sponsor after-hours “mammothon” breast cancer screenings from 6 p.m. to midnight Friday, Oct. 4, and 7 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 5.
The screenings will be held at Ellis Fischel’s new facility at University Hospital, One Hospital Drive, Columbia. Parking will be available in the Patient-Visitor Parking Garage adjacent to University Hospital. To receive a mammogram, women must be age 40 or older or have a doctor’s order. In addition to breast screenings, staff at the mammothon will provide information and education about breast cancer, as well as refreshments and door prizes. Mammograms will be available by appointment only. For more information or to make an appointment, please call Ellis Fischel Cancer Center at (573) 882-8511.
