Kinh and All Those Facing Alzheimers
Walking in memory of Kinh
I'm leading the way to Alzheimer's first survivor by participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 14 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
Together, we can end Alzheimer's disease. Please make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
Thank you for joining the fight against Alzheimer's!___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Bringing care to you

Every October, we see a flood of pink ribbons and signs regarding breast cancer awareness. These are good reminders to perform a breast self-exam or schedule an annual mammogram — but breast cancer does not wait until October. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection is key to improving outcomes and increasing survival.
Screening mammogram recommendations have been up for debate recently, with varying guidelines on what age to begin having them and how often. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists continues to recommend annual screening mammograms beginning at age 40 for women of average risk for breast cancer. Women with a breast condition, family history of breast cancer or a genetically increased risk for breast cancer should talk with their health care provider to determine when mammograms are right for them. Women also should monitor their breasts and look for changes such as a lump, nipple discharge, continued pain, swelling, change in color or dimpling. Any of these should be reported to their provider.
The Norton Healthcare Mobile Prevention Center helps women get convenient breast cancer screenings and other health care. The Mobile Prevention Center is staffed with certified mammogram technicians, board-certified nurse practitioners, registered nurses, medical assistants, lay health navigators and receptionists. Our services include screening mammograms, wellness exams including Pap smears when indicated, assessments for colon cancer screening, smoking cessation classes and general health education. If a woman has a concern, such as a breast lump, our staff can assess and schedule services needed for peace of mind.
The Norton Healthcare Mobile Prevention Center truly is mobile. We are on the road five to six days a week, including weekends, visiting a variety of locations throughout Greater Louisville. The unit also is available to provide screenings at local businesses. This makes seeing a provider or receiving a mammogram extremely convenient. Health insurance is billed as a preventive service. Women who are uninsured are able to be seen and advised regarding funding and grants available, so we may provide these services at little to no cost to the patient.
Appointments for the Mobile Prevention Center are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome as time allows. A schedule of upcoming locations can be found at NortonScreenings.com. Information on our website is provided in English and Spanish. You may visit the website to request an appointment or call our office at (502) 899-6842. Insurance is billed, but funds may available to help those who are uninsured.
The LSHRM Wellness Committee would like to thank our sponsors and everyone who participates in our current events and we look forward to you joining us at all of our Wellness events in 2021!
