Arthur W. Perdue Foundation Donates $100,000 to fund 3D Mammography at Beebe Healthcare’s Georgetown Health Campus

The Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Perdue Farms, has donated a $100,000 grant to help fund the 3D mammography location at the Beebe Health Campus in Georgetown.

3D Mammography, or breast tomosynthesis, is the latest advance in digital mammography technology. 3D Mammography means earlier detection and fewer unnecessary biopsies or callbacks for women.

Fried, President and CEO of Beebe Medical Center; Mammography Tech Melanie Coles, RT (R) (M); Tom Protack, Director of Development at Beebe Medical Foundation; Michael Marion, Medical Services Manager at Perdue in Georgetown and Daniel Stein, Director of Operations at Perdue.
