Safe Care in Breast Health Services
BY AMANDA BIALEK
Certain health screenings are lifesaving. At Lehigh Valley Health Network, Breast Health Services offers one of the most essential: mammograms. Our women’s health specialists are here to ensure you receive the care you need in a safe and comfortable environment. If you are a woman 40 years or older, it is important to not delay receiving your annual screening mammogram and scheduling any follow-up appointments.
