Effingham Mayor Mike Schutzbach (seated center) recently signed a proclamation designating October 2020 as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, urging all women to take precautions to prevent breast cancer. Joining the Mayor from HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital were, standing left to right, Women’s Wellness Center Nurse Navigator Ashley Davis; Medical Director of Women’s Wellness and Cancer Care Services Dr. Ruben Boyajian; and Mammography Facilitator Susan Koontz.

Research shows that deaths from breast cancer could be reduced if women follow breast cancer screening recommendations, including routine mammography, regular examinations by a physician, and monthly breast self-examinations.  To learn more about breast cancer prevention, visit https://www.cancer.org/breastcancer.
