MORRISTOWN, NJ - In addition to asking the women in your life what's for dinner? Can you drop me at practice? Or how was your day? Ask her...... Have you scheduled your mammogram?

In 2017, 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the United States, according to Atlantic Health System. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month,  the hospital is continuing the #AskHer campaign which encourages women to get an annual mammogram. 

Recognizing that so many women put the care of others before themselves, Atlantic Health System believes that it is up to each of us to remind the women in our lives to make their own health a priority. The campaign, originally created by a group of innovative employees, encourages breast cancer screening because early detection saves lives.
