McHENRY – A new Centegra Health System program encourages women to receive screening mammograms in an effort to find breast cancer in its most treatable stages.
“Annual mammograms are an essential part of health screenings for women,” said Dr. Joanna Rossi, director of breast imaging with Centegra Health System. “The American College of Radiology and the American Cancer Society recommend annual mammograms for women age 40 and older.”
The U+2 program rewards women for supporting their friends’ breast health. To participate, a woman visits centegra.org/u2 to enter a screening mammogram appointment request.
She sends two of her closest friends an encouraging email reminder to do the same, right from the U+2 web page. She then receives a voucher via email to redeem for a free eye pillow after her own screening mammogram.
Because women also look out for their friends’ best interests, Centegra will not use or share the friends’ email addresses that are entered as part of the U+2 program.
