Early Detection is the Best Way to Fight Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to equip people with the information and resources they need to spread awareness within their own family and circle of friends. It’s a time dedicated toward helping people understand how prominent breast cancer is and what can be done to help prevent, diagnose, and treat the disease. What can we, as a community, do to fight breast cancer and bring more awareness to the cause? In 2019, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 62,930 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.

Flu Shots Available

Flu shots available at Hutchinson Health. Get yours now, and be prepared before influenza season arrives. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends getting your flu shot before the flu begins spreading in your community. After receiving your vaccination it takes about two weeks to build up antibodies that help protect you from the flu. Getting a shot after influenza season starts is still helpful, but getting it early provides the most benefit. Stop at Hutchinson Health Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and ask for a flu shot. We'll get it taken care of - no appointment necessary. The flu shot is offered at Hutchinson Health. The flu mist will not be available this year. Learn more about the CDC's projections for the 2019-2020 influenza season and the vaccination available. Stop in and get your ... Continue Reading
