Earlier this month KNIA/KRLS aired it’s fourth annual Breast Cancer Awareness Radiothon. The Big Red Radio was at Knoxville Hospital and Clinics and Pella Regional Health Center and operators were on hand to schedule mammograms. Katrina Nelson, Director of Public Relations and Foundation at Knoxville Hospital and Clinics says that they offered two late nights of mammograms and the response was so overwhelming that they will continue to offer them. Nelson says that they are much more convenient for people that work during the day. Mary Lou Ozinga from Pella Regional Health Center says that since the radiothon, there have been more callers than usual. Ozinga says that they have appointments scheduled through next week.
