National Mammography Day is observed annually on the third Friday in October as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This day serves as a reminder to all women that the best defense is early detection. A mammogram can often detect a problem before there is any outward physical sign. Make sure you get your regular checkups.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Set up a mammogram and use #NationalMammographyDay to post on social media.
President Bill Clinton proclaimed the first National Mammography Day in 1993.
