This includes a number of routines that should be followed to avoid potentially severe health hazards. Guest speaker will be Kristen Brant, MS, RD, LDN, Clinical Dietician for Angel Medical Center.
LNO will continue to offer free mammograms to women who qualify for the BCCCP program and have scheduled appointments. For more information, contact Dawn Wilde, Community Health Promotion Supervisor at Macon County Public Health at (828)349-2426.
