Show you care, Be Aware!

TACHP has recently partnered with NorthShore University HealthSystem to communicate the strong relationship between the arts and Health and Wellness.  Through this partnership, TACHP wants to join our partners to spread the word about breast cancer awareness and the importance of getting your annual screening mammogram.

With a dedication to breast cancer prevention, NorthShore’s Center for Breast Health team places an emphasis on early detection. NorthShore’s Center for Breast Health performs more than 90,000 mammograms annually at our screening facilities located across the Chicago area, including downtown Chicago, in Nordstrom at Old Orchard shopping mall and our Center for Breast Health at each of our hospitals. Same-day screening mammogram appointments are often available, as well as fast-track scheduling for diagnostic procedures and appointments with breast surgeons.

As a preeminent imaging center in the Chicago region, and an industry leader in breast cancer prevention, NorthShore provides:

  • State-of-the-art breast imaging technology, including breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography), ultrasound, MRI and automated whole breast ultrasound (ABUS) for women with dense breasts
  • All images interpreted by dedicated breast radiologists, which research shows improves the rate of cancer detection

TACHP will offer a weekend ‘space’ in our galleries for health care professionals who are willing to offer resources and information concerning women’s health.

Watch this space for details about a woman’s health event, an honest discussion about breast cancer, its consequences, available resources, and other women’s health issues. Nutritionists, women’s health experts and others can take part in the event.  You can be a part of it during our Voices and Visions exhibit next Spring.
