Health Department raises money for breast cancer awareness
by Sarah Fay Campbell
Each year, employees at the Coweta County Health Department hold the Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon.
The 2013 event, held on Friday during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, benefits the Coweta Cancer Support Group.
Employees were encouraged to wear pink for the day. This year, they cooked chili for the luncheon, and then everyone was asked to donate to the cause.
“We always enjoy being together,” said WInnie Franks, program associate with the Coweta County Health Department.
The health department offers a Breast and Cervical Cancer Program that provides low or no cost services to low-income, uninsured women. Services include clinical breast exams, mammograms, physical exams and follow up.
For more information on the program, contact the Coweta County Health Department, located on Hospital Road in Newnan, at 770-254-7400.
