MORRISTOWN, NJ – Many women put the care of others before themselves. Atlantic Health System has launched a campaign to provide a different kind of care for all women: screening mammograms.

More than 250,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed this year in U.S. women, according to Atlantic Health System. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month,  Atlantic Health will continue its #AskHer campaign, which encourages women to schedule and receive an annual mammogram.

The campaign, originally created by a group of employees, encourages breast cancer screening. Early detection can save lives.
