The Village presents “Get Your Pink On” an event sponsored by Ascension St. John Hospital on Thursday, Oct. 1, to highlight women’s health. The event underscores the importance for women, even during the pandemic, to stay current with health check-ups and screenings.

This year the event is designed both as an event in The Village and one with online resources that can be accessed by a broader audience. At the event on the first of October, a month designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Village guests can meet with women’s health experts from Ascension St. John Hospital for brief 10 minute health presentations, get a mammogram, and have the opportunity to win prizes by identifying pink pumpkins hidden throughout The Village.

The mobile mammography unit will be stationed in front of The Wilson Center from 3:00 p.m. through 7:00 p.m. and appointments are not necessary. Test results are sent directly to participants’ physicians. Women are seen on a first-come basis as time permits.
