Commonwealth Health To Hold Mammothon
Commonwealth Health will conduct its seventh annual Mammothon from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, at three locations. Volunteers from the six hospitals and related clinics will make calls to women who are past due for their annual mammograms, offering to schedule the screenings or to give a gentle reminder about the importance of yearly mammograms.

Participating volunteers are from Berwick Hospital Center, Moses Taylor Hospital, Regional Hospital of Scranton, Tyler Memorial Hospital, Wilkes-Barre General Hospital and the Diagnostic Imaging Center.
