    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    FAQ's: Getting a mammogram - Do you need one? What happens during the procedure?

    Get the info you need to prepare for mammograms to detect breast cancer.

    Now that health care reform is taking place, mammograms will be covered as preventative health care. Do you think this will significantly impact how many mammograms are performed each year?

    Share your experience and why you feel regular mammograms are (or are not) important.

    Thanks Andie for the latest additions to our Tip and Resource boards! It's so nice to have all of them at our finger-tips for our use, and for noting to newbies who are asking about any of those issues.

    Blessings.
