Thursday's Our Neighbor is helping women put the Focus BACK ON YOU!

Baylor Healthcare System is holding a Women's Health and Wellness Day this Saturday, Jan. 22 at all of their locations across the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.

The event is titled "For Women For Life" and will provide free screenings, presentations and demos that cover various topics including breast health, your heart, cholesterol and bone density.

"In particular for me, breast imaging," said Dr. Scott Woomer, radiologist. "We want to make sure women are aware of their opportunities for screening mammograms and how important it is going forward to detect cancers when they're there- obviously detection is the key"

Baylor medical staff and physicians will also be on hand to answer your questions.

"I would like anyone who visits the healthcare to take away some information to help them live longer," Dr. Phillip Hecht, cardiologist.

You cannot walk in without preregistering. To do so you must contact these locations: Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, the ones in Fort Worth, Carrollton, Waxahachie and Plano. Or call 1-800-4Baylor.
