October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and local medical officials are hoping to raise awareness through a 5K run/walk next week.
Caldwell Medical Center Marketing Director Joe Duncan says that as part of their awareness campaign the hospital will host a 5K run/walk before their Community Health Festival on Saturday, October 19th beginning at 7:30AM.
He adds that interested participants can register in a variety of ways.
Duncan also reminds women to have conversations with their primary care provider about breast cancer screenings and mammograms, but notes that it’s important to keep in mind two categories of risk factors.
