Zonta Club rededicates stained glass window to empower women, patients

Photo: In recognition of National Mammography Day Oct. 18 and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, members of the Zonta Club of Rome rededicated an original stained glass window in Rome Memorial Hospital’s Medical Imaging Center, a Breast Center of Excellence. The specially designed window was originally donated to the hospital in 1970. Celebrating the occasion are, from left, Zonta board member Patricia DeMatteo; Zonta President Camille Dillard; Zonta Immediate Past President Sandy Gerhardt; Rome Memorial Hospital’s Director of Medical Imaging Sharon Carson, and Rome Memorial Hospital Vice President-Chief Medical Officer Andrew Bushnell. Zonta International’s mission is to empower women through service and advocacy. The Zonta Club of Rome hopes the window reminds and encourages women to be involved in their self-care and talk to their provider about breast cancer prevention.
