Join Navicent Health for a Month of Events Celebrating National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death among women in the U.S., and affects those of every ethnicity and socioeconomic background. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 252,710 new patients expected to be diagnosed this year. Although these statistics are alarming, improving treatments and early detection will allow many of these patients to be survivors.

In order to promote breast cancer awareness and education, Navicent Health has prepared a month-long celebration during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The following is a schedule of Navicent Health’s events and festivities:
