The Women's Center Gives Back with Mams 4 Moms

Friday, April 21, 2017

COOKEVILLE, TENN.  – The staff at the Women’s Center at Cookeville Regional has a spot reserved for moms on Friday, May 12 at their annual ‘Mams 4 Moms’ event. On Friday, May 12 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. mothers may schedule an appointment to come to the Women’s Center for a mammogram, free bone density heel screening, enjoy refreshments, and take home a gift.

“Early detection is key in detecting breast cancer. Being a mom, I know how we are always giving everything to those we love, but we have to remember to stop and take time for ourselves so we can continue to be there for the ones we love most.  This event is just one way to say thank you and Happy Mother’s Day to our moms out there,” said Stephanie Jennings, Chief Mammographer at the Women’s Center.  “If you know a mom, whether it's your own mom or perhaps a sister, a grandmother, niece or a friend bring her with you, or encourage her to come get a mammogram at this event. If you're a mom, treat yourself.”

This is the seventh year ‘Mams 4 Moms’ has taken place at the Women’s Center.  The Women Center continues to grow and serve patients in the Upper Cumberland region and surrounding regions.

The Women’s Center at Cookeville Regional is the only accredited breast program in the Upper Cumberland given by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) and they are the only breast imaging center in the Upper Cumberland to earn the American College of Radiology’s Breast Imaging Center of Excellence status.  They combine state-of-the-art features with a comfortable atmosphere to take care of all facets of women’s health. The Women’s Center makes having a mammogram a caring, compassionate experience. They use the latest technology to make sure patients receive quality diagnostic services, relying on digital mammography and the precise accuracy of a stereotactic biopsy. The Women’s Center is also proud to offer bone density testing. Bone density is the most accurate and practical method available today in the diagnosis of osteoporosis. With a focus and commitment to education and self-awareness, the Women’s Center at Cookeville Regional is a vital part of care for women’s health.

“Make an appointment to come and see us at the Women’s Center for this special event that gives back to our moms,” said Jennings.
