Every year, the merchants at Las Tiendas Village Shopping Center get together to host an annual Breast Cancer Event. This year, the event will take place on Saturday, October 18th between 10 AM and 2 PM and will mark the third year the center encourages the community to help support breast cancer research. Admission is free to the public and families are invited to enjoy various activities sponsored by the Las Tiendas Village Merchants and local healthcare community. UCR Health Centers is the impetus behind the event and helps coordinate community physicians, local businesses and residents to come out and have some fun for a great cause.
UCR Health Centers has partnered with Assured Imaging this year to have their Mobile Mammography Van on-site ready to take annual mammograms for ladies who are due for annual screening. Please call 1-888-233-6121 to schedule your mammogram on that day. Insurances will be accepted and flyers will be located in most physician offices in the community with more information on the importance of routine mammography exams. Ladies can also receive a free Breast Cancer Health Kit from the American Cancer Society. Look for the booths located in the mall where attendees will be able to visit with local area physicians, get free blood pressure checks, free podiatry assessment and free chair massages.
