Diagnostic Imaging Technologists Susan Gautot RT(R,M) and Ellen Wapner RT (R,M,CT,QC) of Brattleboro Memorial Hospital successfully completed requirements to become Certified MammaCare Specialists.
MammaCare is the recognized standard for teaching and performing clinical breast examination in breast cancer screening clinics. The certification authorizes Gautot and Wapner to teach MammaCare practices to women and other health care professionals.
“It is a pleasure to welcome Susan and Ellen to the MammaCare family,” said Dr. H.S. Pennypacker, President of the MammaCare Corporation and one of the original team of scientists who developed MammaCare. “They will make an important contribution to medical education and women’s health throughout Vermont,” he added.
The MammaCare training was made possible to the Brattleboro Memorial Hospital professionals through a grant from the Holt Fund.
