Wayne Memorial Hospital Holds 4th Annual “Girls’ Night Out” to Highlight Breast Cancer Awareness during month of October

Jesup – Each Tuesday and Thursday evening in October, Wayne Memorial Hospital will host Girls Night Out as a part of national Breast Cancer Awareness Month to encourage women to have their annual mammograms. During “Girls’ Night Out” women can schedule screening mammograms as late as 7:30 p.m. at Wayne Memorial. The dates of the Girls’ Nights Out are: October 1, 3, 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, 29 and 31.

Key points to know for Girls’ Night Out:

- Mammograms must be ordered by a physician. All patients must present physician orders at the appointment before the procedure.
