In celebration of Breast Health Awareness Month in October, The Breast Health Center at Mount Desert Island Hospital is hosting a variety of events centered around breast health advocacy and education.

All community members are invited to participate in The Breast Health Center’s 6th Annual Wear Pink Day in honor of Breast Health Awareness Month. When you wear your favorite pink tie or attire, you will be showing your support in the fight against breast cancer. To commemorate the community's strength in numbers, MDI Hospital invites all Wear Pink Day participants to meet at noon on Wednesday, October 11 on the steps of the Breast Health Center for a group photo.

“We wanted a simple way for everyone to participate in Breast Health Awareness Month,” said Janelle Cyr, MDI Hospital’s director of medical imaging. “This way, we can come together to bring greater attention to breast health and prevention issues.”
