Francine's Friends Part of Women's Health Day
"Francine's Friends is proud to partner with such a great organization," said Debi Kennedy, Community Outreach Coordinator for Francine's Friends. "The mobile mammography coach is typically there each quarter with a full schedule each time. The staff at St. Martin's ensures that their patients are following our golden rule - the best protection is early detection. We appreciate the opportunity to serve the women in DeKalb County."
Volunteers for this event include the Nurse Midwives from Auburn Birthing Center, Dr. Trina Chapman-Smith and Nurse Practitioners from IPFW School of Nursing as well as nursing and clerical volunteers. Fort Wayne Radiology provided bone density screenings and Francine’s Friends offered screening mammograms. Laboratory services are donated in part by South Bend Medical Foundation. Financial support for this worthwhile day comes from Physicians Health Plan Foundation and United Way of DeKalb County’s Power of the Purse event.
