Lunch & Learn Goes PINK

10/24/2016

Middlesboro ARH Hospital invites ladies in the community to its women’s health series called Lunch & Learn on October 27 at noon in the hospital classroom.

Lunch & Learn offers insight and tips on a variety of women’s health topics. On Thursday, October 27, Dr. Laura Slusher, radiologist certified in breast imaging, will discuss the importance of regular mammogram screenings.

Dr. Slusher earned her medical degree from The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University in Greenville, Nc. She completed two years of an internal medicine residency at Duke University in Durham, Nc., followed by a four-year radiology residency at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Va. Dr. Slusher also completed a one-year fellowship in breast imaging at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Va.

In 2015, Middlesboro ARH installed HOLOGIC Breast Tomosynthesis equipment which is the most advanced mammogram equipment available in the Tri-State. This machine is a true 3D screening that delivers a series of detailed images which allows Dr. Slusher to better evaluate breast tissue, layer by layer. The exceptionally sharp images significantly increase early detection, while reducing the number of callbacks and unnecessary biopsies.

Adult women of all ages are invited to attend the Lunch & Learn series. The lunch will be held in the hospital classroom, which is located near the MRI entrance at the back of the hospital. Lunch will be served at noon with the program starting at 12:10 p.m. and ending at 12:50 p.m.

There will be a drawing for a door prize.

Ladies, to reserve your lunch, please send an email to elsmith@arh.org or call 606.242.1222. Due to limited seating, reservations are required.
