“The Clark Comprehensive Breast Center and Wellness for Women team are grateful for the continued support of our local community,” says Roberta J. Lilly, MD, medical director of the Clark Comprehensive Breast Center. “We thank the Foundation, the volunteers and participants in the upcoming Sporting Clays Classic for their help in providing funding for the Wellness for Women program that is so vital in early detection for many in our community.”

The Wellness for Women breast cancer prevention program at the Clark Comprehensive Breast Center is an educational and screening program that promotes early detection of breast cancer. The goal of the Wellness for Women program is to find women who are at risk for breast cancer early so diagnosis can be made when the disease is curable.

“The funds raised through the Sporting Clays Classic help us provide women with resources they need to stay informed and healthy,” says Jennifer Dyott, nurse practitioner with UM Community Medical Group – Women’s Care. “Patient education and early detection screenings for breast cancer are important for the women in our community.”
