Wellness on the Road to visit Shipshewana

Parkview LaGrange Hospital’s mission to help improve the health of area residents is taking a new approach in 2014 by creating a series of travelling health fairs. Each program will visit different locations in LaGrange County, making it more convenient for members of the community to take advantage of screenings and educational resources.

On Tuesday, July 22, the series continues with a visit to Shipshewana.

Wellness on the Road: Cancer Resources, will be held from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 22, at PPG Family Medicine, 8175 West U.S. 20. Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography will be there.

The best protection is early detection. Francine's Friends Mobile Mammography coach makes getting a screening mammogram quick, easy and convenient. Many insurance plans are accepted and funding is available to cover expenses for women who do not have sufficient financial resources. Call 1-800-727-8439, ext. 26540 for an appointment. Walk-in appointments may be available depending on the schedule. The mobile mammography program is a partnership of the Parkview Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Breast Diagnostic Center and Francine’s Friends.

Representatives from the Parkview Comprehensive Cancer Center and Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana will be on hand to talk with visitors about the wealth of resources that are available. Learn about simple at-home screenings, informational resources, supplies and medical equipment that are available to cancer patients.
