Austin Breast Imaging: Get Your Mammogram Giveawayposted April 18, 2022
Self care is crucial for everyone’s health and well being. That belief is at the foundation of why Shannon, Laurie and Maya founded Viva back in 2005. But we’re here to say that it’s especially important for women.
Self-Care for Super Women
More often than not, women are the primary caretakers of their worlds. According to a 2020 Gallup poll, women now make up 50% of the US workforce but still take on a larger role in household chores, child care, and taking care of aging parents. In fact, mothers did three times as much child care as fathers during the pandemic. The result? Women often don’t spend as much time caring for themselves.

That’s why Viva is proud to be joining forces with Austin Breast Imaging to encourage women to take a big step forward in their preventative care by scheduling an annual mammogram.
