2022 Health & Wellness Guide | Newtown Moms

A renewed focus on our Health & Wellness is top of mind at the start of the year, but truthfully it’s something many of us think about throughout the year. The hope is this Guide will prove useful to you all year long, as we know that as moms it can often be tough to prioritize our own health & wellness.

A big thank you to all of this year’s participating businesses. Check the out below – guaranteed to be something for everyone this year!

Connecticut Breast Imaging is one of the region’s most advanced breast imaging centers dedicated exclusively to the prevention, screening, and diagnosis of breast cancer and other breast abnormalities. Connecticut Breast Imaging uses state-of-the-art technology for 3D Mammography (Tomosynthesis), Breast Ultrasound, and Breast Biopsy, and provides unparalleled diagnostics, interpretation, and care. What’s more? The practice is recognized by the State of Connecticut Employee Network of Distinction for Breast Biopsies.

Unique to the practice, all of their breast imaging physicians are fellowship-trained, which means they’re specialists who have studied the very latest techniques and have the most experience in the field, making them the best at catching potential issues on a mammogram. Many have trained at the country’s most prestigious medical institutions and we are proud of our associations with universities such as Yale, Harvard and Columbia. 

The practice provides a continuum of care, from the first scan to the last treatment. With a sensitivity to the emotional journey each person is on, they pride themselves on having a compassionate relationship with each patient. Connecticut Breast Imaging’s services are available to everyone – because breast cancer does not discriminate by race, gender, or skin color. With three convenient locations in Danbury, it serves patients Monday through Saturday. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call: 203.426.3002 or visit their website: http://ctbreastimaging.org/
