October 21 is National Mammography Day! First proclaimed by President Clinton in 1993, the third Friday in October is dedicated to encouraging women to make a mammography appointment. And to encourage screenings, on this day and throughout the month, participating radiologists will provide discounted or free screening mammograms.
Mammography screening remains the best available method to detect breast cancer early. So show your support to the breast cancer cause this month by asking everyone to make a promise to take care of herself and get a mammogram if they are 40 or over.
We have an entire section dedicated to breast cancer awareness; head over to allheart and check it out!

We hope you enjoy our treats! And if you’re looking for something edible to go along with your new scrubs, a healthier option this season is dark chocolate. It’s actually loaded with antioxidants and reduces blood pressure. It also can improve your mood by increasing blood flow and stimulating endorphins. In small moderation, dark chocolate is a good choice to satisfy that need for candy.
World Mental Health Day was established in 1992 to raise public awareness about mental health issues. The day promotes more open discussion of mental disorders, and encourages efforts in prevention and treatment services.
We know that physical and mental health are intertwined, so a primary goal of World Mental Health Day is to encourage healthcare professionals to address the need to deal with mental health problems of people with chronic physical illnesses and, likewise, the physical care of mental health consumers.
The World Health Organization recommends incorporating mental health into primary care as a cost effective and convenient way of providing services and reducing stigma and discrimination. It is the only annual global awareness campaign to focus attention on specific aspects of mental health and mental disorders.
Today marks the beginning of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As healthcare professionals, we all know the importance of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and elevating the national dialogue on breast cancer—because while many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. While there are different treatment options, a cure has yet to be found.
The campaign for early detection has been extremely successful and awareness is the key to prevention. For more than 25 years, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has educated and empowered women to take charge of their own breast health by practicing regular self-exams to identify any changes, scheduling regular visits and annual mammograms with their healthcare providers, adhering to prescribed treatment, and knowing the facts about recurrence.
Chances are you know at least one person who is currently fighting breast cancer or is in remission who will appreciate the support. So be sure to share your ongoing commitment for the search for a cure to breast cancer. We even have an entire section of scrubs and accessories dedicated to the cause. Check out http://www.allheart.com/breast-cancer-awareness.html and show your dedication!

Now introducing…Mary Engelbreit (ME) scrubs! With a fondness for old-fashioned cartoons and floral patterns, Mary’s designs have a warm, welcoming feel. I found her background to be really intriguing—she got her start working in an art supply store and eventually became a greeting card illustrator in a tiny ad agency. Soon enough, her sketches were widely recognizable, expanding into books, posters, mugs, and of course now clothing. Her pictures are inspired by childhood and lifetime experiences, often infusing fun words and phrases with images. One popular scrub shirt is based on her “Life Is Just a Chair of Bowlies” drawing—the Cherry Print V-Neck Top. I’d suggest pairing it with the ME Red Flare Leg Pant or Black Boot Cut Pant to create a delicious matching set!
