Parkland

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Parkland offers no-cost mammograms, education. During October, Parkland Health will offer events throughout Dallas County to promote breast health and breast cancer awareness. Parkland will host itsannual “Come Together for the Cure” Breast Health and Wellness Expo on two Saturdays this month (10/8 and 10/15). The interactive event for breast cancer fighters, survivors, caregivers and friends will feature Parkland financial assistance, breast health education and community resources, blood pressure/glucose screenings, flu shots and more. The events will also offer no-cost mammograms for those registering in advance.

Another benefit of breastfeeding – breast cancer prevention. Experts cite many important health benefits of breastfeeding for babies. But one that’s not often discussed is that women who breastfed have a lower risk of developing breast cancer. A Parkland women’s health expert can talk about how breastfeeding is beneficial to the health of mothers as well as babies.

Fair foods without the guilt? The State Fair of Texas is open and that means plenty of fried…well, everything. Like fried soul food eggroll, funnel cake chicken sandwich and loaded queso fries. Sound irresistible? Yes, but we all know these yummy treats full of saturated fats and sugar aren’t good for us.  A Parkland dietitian can offer some healthier ways to re-create some of these guilty pleasures.
