Washington Hospital Celebrates 10th Year of Think Pink Event

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Washington Hospital is inviting local residents to the 10th anniversary of the annual Think Pink event on October 18, 2018.

Think Pink is a free event that offers the latest information on breast cancer prevention and treatment, living with advanced breast cancer, and tips for feeling better and leading a healthier life. The event runs from 5 to 7:30 p.m. and will be held in the Tent Atrium at Washington West, located at 2500 Mowry Ave. in Fremont. Light refreshments will be provided. To register, call 510.608.1301.

“Think Pink is really for everyone – women who are undergoing treatment, survivors and their loved ones, and anyone who wants to prevent breast cancer,” said Dr. Victoria Leiphart, a Washington Township Medical Foundation gynecologist and member of the Washington Hospital medical staff who will emcee the event.
