Taking to task on mammograms

Published 2:54 pm Friday, December 18, 2009

In a recent Letter to the Editor, the writer stated that the mammogram task force that recommended no routine exams for women under 50 was appointed by the Obama administration.

Actually, the task force was appointed by the previous administration (can’t recall which president that was). Obama‚Äôs secretary for Health and Human Services immediately disagreed with the task force findings and urged 40+ women to continue routine screenings.
