ONALASKA, WI -

A night of prevention and pampering is coming back to the area.

Mayo Clinic Health System is hosting the annual Mamm and Glam event.

The event gives women a chance to have a mammogram screening and experience some pampering like a foot massage.

Last year, about 40 people took advantage of the night and the clinic is hoping for even more this year. "Having a mammogram can be very scary for people, and our goal is to make people feel very relaxed and  comfortable," said Radiology Clinical Supervisor Heather Pintz.

"Studies have shown that yearly screening mammograms saves lives, decreasing mortality rates by up to 30 or 40%," said Mayo Clinic Health System Radiologist Dr. Laura Littrell.

Mamm and Glam is Thursday evening from 4:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at the Mayor Clinic Health System Onalaska clinic. You're asked to call (608) 392-6237 to set up an appointment.
