Audubon, IA, October 17, 2023 – The Audubon County Hospital Foundation is a proud recipient of the IMT Community Contest grant for the Audubon County Memorial Hospital (ACMH) program the Community Breast Health Education Series.
Foundation board members are grateful to IMT Community Insurance for their support of ACMH and the services the hospital continues to offer Audubon County residents.
During Breast Cancer Awareness month, ACMH’s Dr. Jeffrey Maire, General Surgeon and breast health expert and the ACMH Radiology Department have developed more opportunities for community members to learn about the importance of breast health.
The Community Breast Health Education Series consists of both educational tools and promotional items to serve as reminders to community members of the importance of breast health and that Audubon County Memorial Hospital and Clinics offer breast care services close to home.
Dr. Maire received both the “Feel for Yourself Breast Lump Display” and an interchangeable nodules model where patients can use the model to feel various lump sizes. These models are another tool that increases education through hands-on experience.
For the ACMH Radiology Department, receiving the Breast Cancer Awareness items was just in time for awareness month.
“We would like to extend our appreciation to the Audubon County Memorial Hospital Foundation for their donation that enabled us to not only give gifts during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, but to all Mammography patients throughout the year.” -ACMH Radiology Department
