The Inglewood Imaging Center held its Second Annual "Pink" Breast Cancer Awareness Event recently at their main office on Prairie Avenue. This year's event is called "Pink42,” highlighting the need to support breast cancer disparity that can be upwards of 42% higher in certain communities than others.
IIC's 2016 event was a big success—with nearly 200 attendees—and this year had more attendees demonstrating community support.
Second District Councilman Alex Padilla said he was “delighted to see this special event grow, and looks forward to next year's invitation.”
IIC’s event was part of the nationwide effort to make people more aware and hopefully prevent incidences breast cancer. Similar efforts are made every October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Bradley Schmidt, Founder/CEO of IIC, said “Embrace the Community” is more than just our company motto, it defines our goals, vision and commitment to provide you with the best diagnostic imaging experience available today.”
IIC has invested millions of dollars into the new state-of-the-art imaging center to ensure that patients receive the most accurate medical imaging tests found anywhere in Southern California.
“I want to thank Brad Schmidt, Founder and CEO, for his strong commitment to bring awareness and high quality services to address this awful disease,” Councilman Padilla said. “Brad truly cares about this issue and is making a difference in this field. Keep up the good work, Brad.”
