Replacements, Ltd. Marks Decade of Detection through Workplace Mammogram Program

Annual event empowers employees during Breast Cancer Awareness Month

GREENSBORO, N.C., October 15, 2013 – The world’s largest retailer of old and new china, crystal, silver and collectibles is marking a decade of detection through the company’s innovative workplace mammogram program. For the tenth consecutive year, Replacements, Ltd. is empowering female employees to take control of their health by offering paid preventative screenings as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year’s screenings will take place Tuesday and Wednesday, October 22-23, 2013.

Organizers have grown this wellness initiative into a major success by promoting and encouraging early detection. As a result, this year several employees have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the disease’s early stages.

“The first year we offered the screenings, 25 women participated; this year nearly 100 have signed up,” says Carol Harris, Replacements’ occupational health nurse. “While I greatly credit Replacements for being one of the first companies in this area to offer this type of program, much of this success is driven by the participants themselves. Our ladies have taken charge in spreading word about the program and signing up new participants. By supporting each other, they’ve not only made us successful, they’ve helped others overcome the fear often associated with this screening and ultimately are saving lives.”

Limousines will chauffeur participants from Replacements to the Norville Breast Care Center at Alamance Regional Medical Center. The mammogram screenings are just one program within Replacements’ larger workplace wellness initiatives, which include an on-site nurse and physician assistant.
