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.

How a Better Mammogram Saved One Woman’s Anxiety and Another Her Life.

Oftentimes, when radiologists see unclear or questionable areas on mammogram results, they have the patient come back for additional exams. Call backs can be more common for women with ‘dense’ breasts, where overlapping tissue makes it harder to see early signs of cancer or other breast problems. 3D Mammography can eliminate many of these call-backs and ease women's stress and worry.
