Amata reminds of importance of National Mammography Day
WASHINGTON — Congresswoman Uifa’atali Amata is reminding women of the importance of mammography after age 40, as Friday was National Mammography Day.
“National Mammography Day is a yearly reminder of the importance of early detection,” Amata said.
“Through medical research, doctors and scientists are thankfully making gains in treatment and national survival rates, but this form of cancer affects many women each year. We work together to prevent cancer by early detection, paying attention to any possible symptoms, and just taking time for that routine but important appointment.”
