HEBRON – Thayer County Health Services hosted their annual Women’s Health Night at the Stastny Community Center in Hebron on Wednesday night.
The two-hour event featured three informative speakers, door prize drawings, refreshments and much more. The event was attended by over 300 women in the area.
Event organizer Whitney Schroer says holding an event like this during Breast Cancer Awareness Month was ideal timing.
“It’s really big for (Thayer County Health Services) right now, because we just got a new 3D mammography machine,” Schroer said. “That’s huge for this area. We’re one of the first ones in our area to have a 3D mammography machine, so we’re very proud of that and we really want to promote that.
“It’s a big event for us anyway, but to have that event go along with that is huge.”
36 different vendors from across the area had their products on display at the event Wednesday. The theme for this year’s health night was “your well being close to home.”
Thayer County Health Services has had an annual women’s health night in Hebron for the past six years.
