The North Hawaii Community Hospital’s 13th Annual Girls Night Out event is Friday, Oct. 11, from 6 to 9 p.m., at Kanu o ka ‘Aina New Century Public Charter School in Waimea. With the theme “Get Your Pink On,” NHCH’s Girls Night Out is in October to honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The fun and educational trade show for women includes pampering gifts such as massages, hair styling, manicures, makeup, energy work, acupuncture and other services donations by local resources and businesses. Women will also be treated to complimentary dinner, breast cancer bingo, a silent auction and door prizes. Several booths will offer items for sale, including jewelry, make-up, and more.
A variety of women’s health and wellness information will also be provided to attendees by groups such as the West Hawaii Mediation Center, NHCH’s Rehabilitation Services, NHCH’s Waimea Women’s Center and NHCH’s Breast Health Program. Foodland will conduct bone density screenings and offer flu shots.
Last year, NHCH upgraded their Breast Health Program, which offers patients access to the latest cutting-edge technology, a more comfortable experience, faster image analysis and on-going support, in coordination with Hawaii’s new mammography self-referral law. Early detection is key in treating breast cancer, and annual mammography can help detect breast tumors at their earliest, most treatable stages.
