Women in Missouri now are to be informed of their breast tissue density after having a screening mammogram.

Theresa Taylor Presented with Komen's 2014 Healthcare Professional of the Year

Theresa Taylor, outreach coordinator for Missouri Baptist Medical Center's Breast HealthCare Center (BHCC), had a rewarding time at the Susan G. Komen Power of a Promise event on Sunday, May 4. While listening to the presentations, her co-worker Stephanie Steidemann, patient navigator at the BHCC, leaned over and said to Taylor, “Hey, did you know you were getting this?”
