SouthCoast Health Thinks Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Thursday, October 8, 2015

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Though most people are aware of breast cancer, many do not take the steps to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

SouthCoast Health is dedicated to raising awareness and sharing resources for women of all ages to combat this disease. Our 3D mammography capabilities and NEW High Risk Breast Cancer Clinic are leading the way in our fight against breast cancer. Learn more:

Join Dr. Patricia P. Shapiro, Dr. Christa L. Jillard, Dr. L. Neil Odom and Dr. Regina B. Dandy for a FREE seminar on breast health and the latest technology in breast mammography.

Contact the Savannah Imaging office at 912-691-4200 for more information.


Check Your Pumpkins!

Diligent breast self-exams and mammograms can be the key to early breast cancer detection. To celebrate the Halloween season, SouthCoast Health offices will have a pumpkin decorating contest. 

We invite you to drop by any of our participating offices to check out and vote for our pumpkins and we encourage you to remind the women in your life to check their “pumpkins"!
