PIQUA — In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to raise awareness about early detection of breast cancer as well as the importance of mammography, Premier Health hospitals will host Brake for Breakfast events throughout October.

Upper Valley Medical Center’s Brake for Breakfast event will be Tuesday, Oct. 11, from 6 to 10 a.m. at UVMC’s Outpatient Care Center/North, 280 N. Looney Road, Piqua.

During the morning commute, UVMC will offer a free bagged breakfast and helpful breast health information to motorists (while supplies last). Attendees will simply follow the directional signs and pull up their cars at the designated location to receive a free breakfast.

Motorists also will have an opportunity to register for prizes. The Mix 107.7 morning show will be on-hand to greet motorists and provide helpful information about breast cancer awareness to their listeners.

Premier Health offers breast imaging services at 11 locations throughout the region. Additional services such as 3D mammography, breast-specific MRI, PET/CT scans, ultrasound exams (including automated whole breast ultrasound), and image-guided biopsies performed with stereotactic technology, MRI and ultrasound, are also available.

For women with a personal or family history of breast cancer, Premier Health offers high risk breast centers with specialized nurses, genetic counselors and other breast health experts to develop a personalized plan to meet each woman’s unique needs.
