Health and wellness programs
The Stamford Hospital mobile wellness program comes to the library for mammography screenings on Friday, Sept. 6, from 9 to 3 in the front parking lot. Services offered include baseline mammograms for women ages 35 to 39 and annual mammograms for women ages 40 and over. The hospital’s mobile services are fully digital, fast, convenient and private. For women with busy September schedules, this is the easiest way to accomplish an important health check. Insurance is accepted. Women may call 203-276-5990 and choose Option 1 to schedule appointments. The Breast Cancer Survivors’ Support Group meets on Tuesday, Sept. 10, from 6 to 8 p.m. The Breast Cancer Survival Center, a nonprofit organization, holds group meetings once a month at the library. The group helps people once treatment ends (surgery, radiation and/or chemo) beyond what family and friends can give. To learn more about the BCSC, visit breastcancersurvival.org or call Nina Marino, LCSW, clinical director of BCSC at 203-857-7404 with any questions. Registration is highly encouraged.
