Pink Tea to learn more about breast cancer

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Women gathered with their girlfriends Thursday morning for Pink Tea.

Along with lunch and tea, the women heard from a panel of physicians who discussed breast cancer, prevention, early detection methods and treatment.

It is important to remember to take the steps necessary for early detection, including monthly self-exams and yearly mammograms.

One of the speakers explained why this informal tea is so helpful.

"It's a chance just for anyone in the community to interact with their physicians to ask questions that they may want to know. It's very informal and just an open exchange of information," said Dr. Elena Rehl, speaker.

Memorial University Medical Center's Generation One is an enriching social and educational program for senior adults age 50 or older.
