Windsong to host breast screening event

An In Honor of Mother’s Day Reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Windsong Radiology Group, 55 Spindrift Drive, Williamsville.

The free community event will highlight the importance of annual breast screening for women 40 and older.

“The recently published American Cancer Society breast screening guidelines have caused significant confusion for many women,” Dr. Anna Chen, Windsong director of women’s imaging, said in a news release. “In order to reduce the confusion Windsong invites mothers, daughters, sisters and friends to learn more about Windsong’s recommendations for breast screening. These breast screening recommendations mirror the Society of Breast Imaging and the American College of Radiology’s guidelines for women over the age of 40 to be screened annually.

Melissa Holmes of WGRZ-Channel 2 will be on hand to introduce a dedicated group of women who have helped educate women across the region about the importance of annual breast cancer screening and the benefits of early detection.
