BREAST CANCER MONTH KICKS OFF IN GREENVILLE

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and there was a ceremony at Greenville Regional Hospital Monday.  Chief Nursing Officer Tammy Lett addressed the crowd. She said Greenville Regional Hospital will be focusing their efforts in the coming months on increasing women’s awareness about mammography and encouraging women to get their annual mammogram.  The American Cancer Society did a study recently which shows less than half of women, age 40 and over, receive an annual mammogram.  Mammograms provide early cancer detection.  The hospital’s goal is to be visible and involved in promoting awareness this month through activities such as the Women’s Wellness Event and the First Annual Pink Bowl.  Greenville Mayor Alan Gaffner issued a proclamation supporting the cause.

PRESCRIPTION DRUG COLLECTION A SUCCESS

The Greenville Police Department, Bond County Sheriff’s Department, and Greenville Regional Hospital teamed up to collect out-dated and unused prescription drugs. Ryan Mifflin said this was the first year Bond County participated in this nation-wide event.  Individuals could drop off unused and unwanted prescription medications at the Bond County Sheriff’s Department, the Greenville Police Department, and Greenville Regional Hospital.  Mifflin said one person dropped off medications from 1988.  The Drug Take-Back Days are an easy and safe way to dispose of these expired or unused medications.
