August is National Immunization Awareness Month!

Shots can prevent infectious diseases like measles, diphtheria, and rubella. But people in the U.S. still die from these and other vaccine-preventable diseases. It's important to know which shots you need and when to get them. 

Are you unsure about what immunizations you or your children should be up to date on? Check out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for age specific information about vaccines and immunizations.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

According to the American Cancer Society, 2012 will bring 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer in the United States. In addition, 63,000 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be found (the earliest form of breast cancer). At this time, the chance of a woman having breast cancer is 1 in 8. Breast Cancer death rates are decreasing, probably as a result of finding cancer earlier and due to the accesibility of better treatment. Mammography is the best screening tool used today to find breast cancer. 

Early Detection Saves Lives!
