Hospital’s Mammogram Parties Connect With Community

St. Joseph Medical Center (Joliet) draws women by easing stress of mammograms. Bridal shower-like parties build peer support. In the Baltimore Sun:

Outreach manager Sandy Peterson decided to put together the mammogram parties after hearing of a similar event at sister hospital Provena St. Mary’s Hospital in Kankakee. She said that within minutes of sending out an e-mail about the first party, she received 40 responses from women who wanted to take one of the 10 spots available.”
