Premier Health Hosts Brake for Breakfast Across the Region Event Raises Breast Cancer Awareness

DAYTON, OHIO, September 9, 2020 – In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Premier Health will hold “Brake for Breakfast” events at multiple locations throughout the month of October. During the morning commute, motorists can drive through and pick up a free breakfast bag and helpful breast health information, while supplies last.

According to the National Cancer Institute, over 40,000 women die annually from breast cancer. A woman’s chances for survival are good if detected early.

The goal of Brake for Breakfast is to encourage more women 40 and older to get an annual mammogram and tell their mothers, sisters and daughters to do the same. This event is a fun way to show women that taking care of their health should be part of their daily routine. Commuters don’t have to leave their cars to participate.

Each event will take place from 6 to 10 a.m. at the following locations:

Thursday, October 1
Upper Valley Medical Center Outpatient Care Center - North  
280 Looney Road
Piqua, Ohio 45356

Thursday, October 8
Miami Valley Hospital North
8900 N. Main Street
Englewood, Ohio 45415 

Tuesday, October 6
Atrium Medical Center

Centerville, Ohio 45459 

Premier Health is committed to safeguarding the health of our patients, visitors, and staff. New safety and contactless measures are in place at this year’s Brake for Breakfast events. All staff and volunteers at the event will be wearing masks and will be screened for coronavirus symptoms. For added precaution, Premier Health is asking motorists to also wear a face covering while staying in their car. Additionally, the MIX107.7 or Q102 Morning Show will be on hand to greet motorists and provide helpful information about breast cancer awareness to their many listeners.

Premier Health offers breast imaging services at multiple locations throughout the region. Additional services such as 3D mammography, breast-specific MRI, PET/CT scans, ultrasound exams (including automated whole breast ultrasound), and image-guided biopsies performed with stereotactic technology, MRI and ultrasound, are also available. For women with a personal or family history of breast cancer, Premier Health offers high risk breast centers with specialized nurses, genetic counselors and other breast health specialists to develop a personalized plan to meet each woman’s unique needs. Premier Health also has a mobile mammography coach to provide mammograms on-the-go for busy women in Southwest Ohio.
