November 23, 2010 Community Event
Information about breast health and cancer screening was provided by the Women’s Health Project at an event held November 23 for the residents of the Providence Hall apartment complex in Hudson. Rhonda Makoske, Director of Medical Imaging at Columbia Memorial Hospital, led participants in a “Wheel of Knowledge” game in which they learned about when and how often women should get mammograms, the relationship between the risk for breast cancer and women's age, and the importance of early detection.
The event was the eighth in a series of free health events offered by the Women’s Health Project, a community-based initiative of the Center for the Elimination of Minority Health Disparities at the University at Albany.
