Free Breast Health Event 
Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital  
Tuesday, 15 April 2008 
 
 
Free event teaches women about self breast care and how to select the right bra. 

Women age 40 and older are invited to a free, private breast self-exam consultation and bra fitting session hosted by Cypress Fairbanks Women’s Imaging Center and the Women’s Health Boutique. The event will be held on Saturday, May 3, from 9 a.m. to noon in the Women’s Imaging Center. Reservations are required and space is limited. Call 800-681-2733 to make your reservation today.

Women will meet with a registered technologist to discuss one-on-one how to perform breast self-exams. Consultants from the Women’s Health Boutique will be on-site to provide complimentary, private bra fittings for all figure types.

The American Cancer Society recommends that women have a mammogram and clinical breast exam every year after age 40. Women also should perform monthly breast self-exams. A properly fitting bra helps keep breasts supported during physical activities and can prevent injury to breast tissue. Well-fitting bras also are important for posture, especially for women with large breasts.

To schedule a mammogram call 281-897-3121.
