“I think a lot of people tend to put their health care on the back burner, especially when they are raising families, and the more proactive you can be and the more knowledgeable and educated you can make yourself regarding health issues, the more likely you are to be healthy and make healthy choices,” said Lisa Duncan, site coordinator for sports medicine and physical therapy with Premier Health in the Countryside YMCA.
Premier Health and Atrium Medical Center’s mobile mammography coach will be on-site and available for appointments. Call 844-453-4199 in advance to register for a mobile mammogram.
