Golf Event for Breast Cancer Awareness and Patient Services
Oct 08, 2015 04:53PM
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Medical Thermography of Hamilton County is sponsoring a Golf Outing on October 14, benefitting Pink Ribbon Connection of Indianapolis. The event will begin at 10:30 am with a brunch at the offices of Medical Thermography of Hamilton County and Living with Intention, where participants will learn more about early detection and prevention of breast cancer. Golfers will tee off at noon for nine holes of golf at River Glen Country Club.
Living with Intention celebrated the grand opening of Medical Thermography of Hamilton County on September 30, where attendees were able to participate in live demonstrations of thermography imaging, and learn about the services provided to breast cancer patients and survivors by Pink Ribbon Connection.
By measuring the infrared energy of the breasts, thermography can detect subtle differences suggestive of cancer long before they may be visualized by mammography. Medical Thermography of Hamilton County utilizes SPECTRON-IR, the most advanced technology available. It is FDA cleared for adjunctive diagnostic screening for the detection of breast cancer, and involves no radiation, important because radiation itself can trigger the start of cancer.
Living with Intention also offers functional and integrative medicine, mental health and addictions counseling, dietitian services, and pharmacy-grade supplements.
