In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Atrium Medical Center will hold its annual “Brake for Breakfast” event from 6 to 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12, at the Middletown hospital, located at One Medical Center Drive. During the morning commute, motorists can drive through and pick up a free breakfast bag and helpful breast health information, while supplies last.
According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 40,000 women die annually from breast cancer. A woman’s chances for survival are good if detected early.
The goal of Brake for Breakfast is to encourage more women 40 and older to get an annual mammogram and tell their mothers, sisters, and daughters to do the same. This event is a fun way to show women that taking care of their health should be part of their daily routine. Commuters don’t have to leave their cars to participate.
Premier Health is committed to safeguarding the health of our patients, visitors, and staff. Continued safety and contactless measures are in place at this year’s Brake for Breakfast event. All staff and volunteers at the event will be wearing masks. For added precaution, Premier Health is asking motorists to also wear a face covering while staying in their car. Additionally, the Q102 Morning Show will be on hand to greet motorists and provide helpful information about breast cancer awareness to their many listeners.
