Coliseum Health System Announces Breast Cancer Month Events

Staff Report From Middle Georgia CEO

Monday, October 7th, 2019

Coliseum Health System will “Think Pink” throughout the month of October as we observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Coliseum Medical Centers and Coliseum Northside Hospital will offer several special events designed to bring awareness to the importance of breast cancer prevention and early detection, honor breast cancer survivors, and remember those whose lives ended too soon because of the disease. 

Dr. Keith Martin, a surgeon at Coliseum Surgical Specialists, said, “Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a great opportunity for us to educate all women on the importance of early detection so that breast cancer can be found in its earliest stages when it is easier to treat. At the same time, we honor women who have been given that difficult diagnosis and we honor them in their fight against the disease.”

The public is invited to join us at the following events:
