Michigan hospital hosts breast cancer event.

In February, Sparrow hospital, located in Lansing, Mich., hosted its second annual Breastival. The event was a way for people in the community to learn about breast health and survivorship in a fun way. There were a variety of booths on hand to teach women about various health issues including nutrition, surgery and breast self-exams. The festival was presented by the Women's Information Network and Support group, which is a organization that offers educational programs to women diagnosed with breast cancer.

The Breastival was free of charge and volunteers offered light refreshments to the guests. Additionally, the attendees had a chance to get feedback from health care professionals during a one-on-one question and answer session hosted by various doctors.

The booths present at the event offered information on therapy, medical oncology, radiation oncology, clinical trials, genetics and other medical areas that deal with breast cancer.

Sparrow also offers a breast self-examination class to help women learn how to check for lumps. The instruction sessions are hosted by a registered nurse who speaks about the importance of early cancer detection and overall breast health.
