                Jean West-Zawacki, RD, LDN, Grand View clinical nutrition manager
  • Use herbs, spices, lemon or lime juice to flavor foods, instead of salt.
  • Check nutritional labels. Avoid foods with more than five percent of your Daily Value (%DV)

  • Use fresh or frozen vegetables, instead of canned.

 Join Grand View Hospital this October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, in Painting the Town
 Pink. Tell your mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, or friend of the importance of early detection.

 The recent controversy over how often a woman should get a mammogram shows it’s more
 important than ever to discuss your breast cancer screening options with your physician. David
 Levin, DO, radiologist on Grand View’s medical staff, recommends that most women start getting
 mammograms at 40. He also suggests talking to your physician about:
     • When you should begin mammography screening, if you have personal or family risk factors
     • How often you should have a mammogram

 Grand View offers digital mammograms at any of its convenient locations in Sellersville,
 Harleysville, Pennsburg, or Quakertown. To schedule a mammogram, call 215-453-4100.

 Check with your insurance carrier regarding coverage.
