The month of October is traditionally recognized across the nation as Breast Cancer Awareness Month! As is the tradition, the Jackson Parish Hospital administration and staff joined the movement to raise awareness and educate the community about breast cancer by wearing pink.
As shown below, JPH also closed the month with several unique and creative themes and competitions this past week to continue to bring attention to the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women.
